Maxair in Albuterol are two entirely different things maxair is the powder that you physically have to suck into your lungs to use albuterol is an aerosol or a liquid for breathing treatment so how is maxair messing with the ozone I can not use a propellant because it makes me bounce off the walls so what am I supposed to use after all these years of using maxair or is breathing not important anymore
First of all, dont be angry with me as I am a person just like you and have no ties to the manufacturer or with DDC. Here is what I found out: It had to have contained chlorofluorocarbons (CFC's) in the cartridge. That was the reasons those inhalers were d/c'd. Some manufacturers changed over to HFA's as a substitute for the CFC's but I dont know if pirbuterol was one of them. If they were not selling a lot of Maxair then it wouldnt be cost effective for them to change to using HFA's like albuterol did. Actually pirbuterol, the active ingredient in Maxair is chemically related to albuterol and although they are not the same exact drug, they are very similar. Xopenex would be another option than albuterol. Have you tried Advair Diskus at all? It is a powder as well
