I understand this product has been discontinued what replaces it?
The FDA declared this drug a "non-essential" use of CFC propellants and discontinued it's manufacturing and sale as of 12/31/13. Unfortunately there are no other pirbuterol inhalers left on the market. Those of us not helped by or allergic to albuterol inhalers (I am one of those people) now have no rescue inhalers. The FDA doesn't care. I spent almost a year e-mailing and calling them. Their response is that " one of the approved HFA propelled inhalers SHOULD be an adequate alternative." I'm still trying to figure out what we patients can do to get this vital drug back.
