Primatene Mist With Chlorofluorocarbons No Longer Available After Dec. 31, 2011 (Products)

    Newer Older

    Primatene Mist (epinephrine) will no longer be available after Dec. 31, 2011. This over-the-counter asthma inhaler uses chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) to move the medicine out of the inhaler so patients can breathe the medicine into their lungs. The United States and most other countries have signed an international agreement to phase out CFCs because they decrease the earth’s ozone layer, which helps protect us from harmful ultraviolet radiation.

      Thank you fda I have used primatene mist or something similar since I was a kid I know I have used it for years and years as an adult and it always worked and I am 61 now. You people never consider the people you are affecting I mean really I buy a bottle of this and might last me 2 years and you think that is really going to affect the ozone layer that much if you have a problem with that you better get off your ass and do something about all the other things significately affect the ozone. you need to look at the real world and get out of your offices and see how the real people here have to live. I can afford this I can not afford many of the new inhalers and really how safe are they to use in our bodies and for planet earth.
