If the foil pouch is opened and 1 vial removed and the remaining vials replaced and the pouch crimped tightly please explain why after 2 weeks the remainder must be discarded. the vials are air tight and by crimping kept in darkness. Many of my students parents can not afford to replace and will need to return to albuterol use which I do not prefer.
I've often wondered on meds like this if its not because they want to make more money. They don't bother to explain why that is. I'd call the manufacturer and ask them why. I feel like you do, if its protected from light, why can't I use them all? The number for med info is 1-800-739-0565 and customer service is 1-888-394-7377
