Albuterol USP inhalers will be withdrawn form production by December 2008. If you allergic to Sulfa, you will be out of luck. All other rescue inhalers have sulfa except xopenex and serevent qnd atrovent. Xopenex doesn't give the immediate relief you get from Albuterol USP and both serevent and atrovent can make the attack actually worse for some asthmatics. I for one, can't take either. The reason for this recall is that the EPA feels that the propellant will harm the atmosphere. The tiny amount that may escape the small number of asthmatics out of a universe of 300 million Americans is hardly worth the paper the law is written on. The danger to asthmatics may be great with deaths resulting. When I spoke to the FDA spokeswoman and mentioned that asthmatics lives might be endangered, she replied that I should think of the environment which affects everybody. If we want action, we must proptest by e-mailing EPA, FDA and asthma organizations and every chat room, forum or blog we can contact. We have very little time!
