I am very, very frustrated and distraught with GlaxoSmithKline right now. If this is a problem, no matter how remote or minute, shouldn't the customer be able to return the product for a new product immediately? If not, why even bring it to our attention? I have contacted my pharmacy, my husband's pharmacy, my doctor and my husband's doctor and they know very little if anything about this recall. This is not something to guess about. IT IS MY LIFE..AND OTHERS... GSK needs to do a better...

@5dr80 that sounds really frustrating and I'm sorry you are having so much trouble getting information. You can call GSK's company’s response center: 1-888-825-5249 and should be able to sort things out for you.

@Concerned , I hear your frustration about being on a fixed income. The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America is not associated with GlaxoSmithKline who is the manufacturer of the Ventolin inhaler. We are a non-profit organization, and we are reporting this recall to inform people with asthma who rely on this medication. Please call GlaxoSmithKline's response center at 1-888-825-5249 and speak to their representative. AAFA's blog post about What to Do If You Can't Afford Your Asthma...

@chrmiles check the canister portion. You may need to pull it out of the plastic to see.

ChrMiles, was your inhaler part of the recall?

No it wasn't. Probably too old for the recall as got it a while back. Doctor gave me new one yesterday because transferring care/other one expired. So all good to go!

Are there albuterol inhalers other than Ventolin by GlaxoSmithKline? The last 4 or 5 that I have had seemed to have been faulty. I'd like to try a different brand.

Hi Suzique, Welcome to AAFA's asthma support community. Yes, there are other brands of albuterol. If you are interested in trying one of them, I would talk to your doctor to discuss what would be appropriate for you.

Re: GSK to Offer Generic Version of Ventolin HFA Albuterol Inhaler

will it have a counter? there is an issue with having hundreds of students with asthma in our school system and no counter in the back of the rescue inhaler.....do we guess if there is enough medication left? the inhalers go back and forth with the students in the high school so you don't know how many times they are being used, they can be out of medication or close to running out and we won't know until there is a problem.....with the younger ones, the parent usually brings in the inhaler...

That's a good question Georgianna! I'm not sure of the answer, but I am hopeful someone will be able to answer that for us sooner rather than later!

Georgianna, the full prescribing information leaflet that GSK linked to in the press release above says this: However, I will note that this looks like they have linked to the brand name Ventolin HFA prescribing leaflet. Since they say that the medication is the same and has the same instructions for use as the Ventolin HFA, I'm assuming that it will be the same with a counter.

Georgianna, I wanted to follow up with this info. AAFA got confirmation from GSK that there is indeed a counter on the generic device.

Trust me, GSK is not doing this out of the goodness of their hearts as they don't have hearts. Just another greedy pharmaceutical company bilking the american public. They are probably losing market share to TEVA Pharmaceutical who is based out of Jerusalem, Israel. TEVA got FDA approval for a bunch of generic drugs back in early 2018.and makes a both a commercial and generic version of an albuterol inhaler that is available now in the USA. I lost my job and insurance back in Dec 2017 and...

I just did a quick lookup using goodrx.com for the Generic of ProAir® HFA (albuterol sulfate) Inhalation Aerosol and it costs about $26 with their coupon at Walmart, Publix and CVS. Last time I bought a Ventolin without insurance it was $70 so the TEVA version is about 1/3 the price of Ventolin Same lookup for the highest dose of the Generic of AirDuo RespiClick and it comes up between $52-$60 using the goodrx coupon as well. Last Advair Diskus I bought without insurance was $236 with a...
