Get the Facts on the Albuterol Inhaler Transition

e frequently than CFC MDIs. HFAs tend to clog more quickly

than CFCs, preventing medication from reaching patients' airways.

-- HFA MDIs have different priming requirements. Priming (spraying

multiple doses into the air) loads the correct dose of medication

inside the inhaler. Each HFA inhaler has different priming

instructions, which can be quite different from CFC priming.

-- HFA MDIs offer more treatment options. In the past, all brand and

generic albuterol CFC MDIs were virtually identical. Now there are

three uniquely different formulations of albuterol HFA inhalers plus a

levalbuterol HFA inhaler -- each distinctly different from the others.

Some people may find that one HFA inhaler works better for them than

another.

-- HFA MDIs cost more than generic CFC albuterol MDIs. HFA MDIs are not

simply copies of CFC MDIs with new propellants. The inhaler transition

required a complete overhaul of the MDI manufacturing process. No

generic HFA MDIs are currently available. This translates to higher

out-of-pocket expenses for many patients, even those with prescription

drug coverage. Pharmaceutical companies are providing financial

assistance to patients in the form of rebates, discounts and coupons

and patient assistance programs.

"These are lifesaving medications," says Sander. "Patients and medical professionals need to know that inhalers are changing and have the opportunity to make the switch in a medically responsible way. Our advice to patients: Get the facts. Know your options. Make informed choices."
