    no primatene and such asthma inhalers are worse for you than albuterol. A dr will tell you that as well. next time make sure you dont run out. if you are using it more than 1-2 times a week then you  most likely need an asthma controller med like advair or symbicort. if you take any inhaler too much it can result in a heart attack/cardiac arrest(many doctors have  told me that more than once) as it speeds up your heart.
