The earliest date that a generic version of Ventolin could become available is October 2015, when the patent for Ventolin expires. However, there are other circumstances that could come up to extend that date past October 2015, including other patents for specific uses of the medication or lawsuits. Because older, "traditional" albuterol inhalers will no longer be available after December 31, 2008, you should be sure to talk with your healthcare provider if you need help in affording the newer inhalers, such as Ventolin.
