Are Over The Counter Inhalers Any Good For Asthma

i ran out of my albuterol inhaler and was wondering if over-the-counter inhalers any good? If so, what brand do you recommend?

Answer

I would not recommend any over the counter asthma products. They can actually be more dangerous than prescribed meds. I write about the hazards of one such over the counter asthma medicine here. The best thing to do is ask your doctor for a prescription for a back-up albuterol inhaler that you can keep in case you run out.
