Novo Salbutamol inhaler vs Primatene Mist

I would like to know if a Novo Salburiamol inhaler is safe. And does it have similar ingredients as Primatene mist? Specifically epinephrine? ## It risks causing complications and side effects the same as any other medication. And no, Salbutamol is the active ingredient in it. Its common side effects may include nausea, dizziness muscle cramps and headache. Are there any other questions or concerns?

Asthma Nephrin

Clear liquid in small bottle used with old bubble looking manual inhaler Asthma inhaler. Last time I had one was approx. 15 years ago. ## It comes in a small dark brown little bottle. and it's the only med that helps me breath ameditly ## I have seen Tv commercial for asthmanephrin and have been trying to find out more information about it and where I can obtain it. IS a prescription necessary? What is the price. ## It doesn't work any where near as good as Primatene Mist. This another example of the a**holes we have in Washington screwing up the public. ## What side effe3cts are there for asthmanephrin? ## Finally - someone gets it. It was all planned to make you go to the doctor for a prescription and for the drug companies to make more money.
