Making the Switch to a CFC-Free Inhaler
If you use an inhaler for asthma, COPD or another breathing problem, you’ve probably heard that you need switch to a new type of inhaler.
You may wonder why you have to change, especially if your current inhaler works for you.
You won’t be able to get a CFC inhaler after Dec. 31 and your pharmacist won’t be able to give you an HFA inhaler without a new prescription. So make sure you talk to your allergist soon and get your new prescription before you run out of medicine. You need to have your quick-relief inhaler available at all times.
