    Ventolin Diskus?

    Does anyone know if you can buy ventolin diskus in the us? It's made by gsk & looks just like advair diskus but a different color. My exchange student who has asthma brought hers over from Holland, & I would really love it because the propellents in the regular inhalers irritate my lungs.

    Thanks !

    Sorry for the late response, coughy!

    I haven't been able to find any information on buying the Ventolin Diskus in the US. You might want to speak with your doctor about this. Hopefully, he/she can help you out!

    Good luck!

    Yeah, sorry coughy.

    I did some research when I had a chance also. I didn't find anything. I did find some information referring to the med, but it was for Canada.

    Take care and God bless.
