This has worked better for me than albuterol. Albuterol just doesn't do the trick like the Primatene does.

I have used Primatene mist for many years and it has been a life saver when I have an asthma attack. I take Flovent on a daily basis, but occasionally have a severe asthma attack brought on by seasonal allergies or allergy to some cats, and this always does the trick. I have never noticed any side effects.

It helps me get through the day. Where I live, there is a high concentration of mold and mildew in the air and this helps a lot.

I've been taking this since my Albuterol ran out and it isn't nearly as efficient. I am horrendously allergic to my mom's dogs and whenever I come home I have to use it. It does help when I have shortness of breath but it doesn't last long enough. I often get headaches from using it as well.
