Warn Patients Not to Rely on OTC Primatene Mist for Asthma
Primatene Mist (epinephrine) will return to OTC shelves for relieving mild symptoms of intermittent asthma in patients age 12 and up.
It was withdrawn in 2011 due to chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) propellant regulations, NOT safety issues. But most of us were happy to see it go.
Now Primatene Mist is back with an HFA propellant.
