Asthma Rescue Inhalers, Stock Up Now

Asthma Rescue Inhalers, Stock Up Now

Postby Elizabeth » Fri Feb 11, 2011 12:39 am


I am a registered nurse and have always tried to keep a fairly extensive medical kit along with my BOB in the car. One of the things I keep is a OTC rescue inhaler, sold under the brand name "Primatene Mist". It is epinephrine (adrenalin), plain and simple. No one in my family has asthma, but I keep it for emergencies, including an anaphylactic reaction to a bee sting etc. I decided to get a new one the other day as mine was quite outdated. Wal-Mart still has them. There is not a note on the box (by the FDA): "This drug will no longer be available OTC after December 2011". Stock up now folks, but I would not buy multiples at one time, that would be a red flag for sure. Best Regards, - Julie under a Snowdrift in Oklahoma
