    "Allergenic Asthma" the name is the only thing that has been updated in the progress of asthma in 38 years. Because the Pro Air is total crap, I am completely not able to visit my boyfriend who has a cat and dogs and is a cannabis grower, at his place for more than 1 hour with out a trip to the ER, where, like a robot I sit for hours, then they listen to my lungs and tell me what I all ready am well aware of. I tell them to please give me a nebulizer treatment, and dose me with prednisone, I get a prednisone rx for a week and $3-400 later, I'm feeling somewhat better. I am allergic to dogs, cats, horses, guinea pigs, ferrets, rats, mice, hampsters, goats, foxes, skunks, possums, anything with hair. molds, laughing, excercising, cold drinks, pollens, marijuana ( i touch it, and I break out in hives all over, I don't even smoke it), perfumes, the list goes on I am so sick of my life being controlled by this. Now I can't even go to my boyfriends place. Screw You asthma, our albuterol inhalers are the last thing that the ozone needs to worry about!! How lame thanks for letting me vent

    The CFC containing albuteral inhalers were pulled from the market anyway! Leaving me with no generic alternative and less options for a rescue inhaler.
