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.

I got a new doctor and he did the prior authorization correctly and It was still denied. They want to know why I can't use it.I left a message for my doctor to do the appeal and tell them it doesn't work for me.I'm still using the inhaler that my sister sent me the money for. I still have to use my inhaler in hot weather here in Az. It's 115 and tomorrow 117 and we've had dangerously hot weather. We already broke the record of 120 from 23 yrs.ago.

@Carrottop50 That's really frustrating. I've run into issues where the insurance still denied coverage on a med even after the doc submitted the proper documentation. I'm currently fighting to get a nose spray covered. The one I want (had samples) works better than the others I've tried. Have you contacted the insurance company to ask if there is further documentation they need? What is the appeals process? Is there a patient advocate you can speak with? Has the doc considered trying the...

I want Beconase or Qnasl for my nose. I used Beconase CFC on and off from about 1975-2005 and it was always miracle. They discontinued it! Now they exclude it. It's a new trend I was reading that started about a year ago. You have to appeal for medical necessity, anyone done this successfully for INS (inhaled nasal steroids?) There is a lot of research saying untreated allergic rhinitis increases chance of hospital visit for asthma significantly.

Thanks! I've never had it take 6 months or more and was very stressful, but I thank God that I finally got it since I need it everytime I go outside! I'll keep praying that all of you get the results you need! On Aug 19, 2017 6:18 AM, "Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America" < support@aafa.org> wrote:

Note: As of May 16, 2017, GlaxoSmithKline expanded their recall. Additional lot numbers have been added below. GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) issued a voluntary Class II recall on April 4, 2017 for three lots of VentolinĀ® HFA 200D Inhalers from U.S. hospitals, pharmacies, retailers and wholesalers as a precautionary measure. It is not a consumer recall.
