Asthma patients who rely on over-the-counter inhalers will need to switch to prescription-only alternatives as part of the federal government's latest attempt to protect the Earth's atmosphere.

But the switch to a greener inhaler will cost consumers more. Epinephrine inhalers are available via online retailers for around $20, whereas the alternatives, which contain the drug albuterol, range from $30 to $60.

Actually, the ban was imposed under Bush, but it was specified that the ban would not take effect until January 1, 2012.


The FDA first began public discussion about the use of CFCs for epinephrine inhalers in January 2006; the agency finalized the phase-out date for using CFCs in these inhalers and first notified the public in November 2008.

What kind of babbling idiot are we dealing with here? This is just another sign of how disconnected Obama is from the real world and how he dances to the tune of Pharm and Insurance. Next thing we're all gonna be paying a breathing tax. The coming months under his 'leadership' actually scare me.

So they want to ban vitamins, and they are going to ban these over the counter inhalers.
Looking at things, this all can lead back to pharmacy companies who will make even more profit.

I'm awfully glad my son grew out of his asthma. His young childhood attacks were brutal a few times and I'd hate to think his own easy salvation for one lay in what could be prescribed and paid for at that level. What is so wrong about having these over the counter??

The insane fanatic fringe around global warming and animal rights are paving the road to a very hot place with their good intentions. They're leaving a lot of dead or destroyed people in the ditches too.

Nice catch! But Obama could reverse it.
But he won't.

So I'll still despie Obama the same and despise Bush just a wee bit more.

Yes, because of all the pressing issues coming across his desk, he should put priority on asthma inhalers that will cost an extra $10. Let's forget about the cost already incurred on the other inhaler companies that have invested in and already implemented non-CFC inhalers.

Ten dollars may not mean much to you or myself, but to others, it is the difference between eating that day or not.

But hey, if Obama doesn't care abou the poor, then he'll just have to answer for it.

I suppose ALL mainstream candidates, encompassing the entire political spectrum, will have to answer to that, as none of them really seem to care about the poor. So, yeah, I agree....he will be answering to the poor in the upcoming election cycle.

So this Montreal Protocol signed by Reagan then supported by every President since and both parties is now being blamed on Obama? ATS logic at its finest.

Obama, not candidates, can reverse it. Hell, he could have reversed it the first day he was in office.

But he didn't.

Legacy is a bitch.
