    Goodness that is steep for an O2 reading when you can get devices for $45 dollars online just about anywhere. You might want to get a device and read your own at that rate.

    Xopenex is Very effective for wheezing and coughing of asthma. It does give me nausea and a sore throat, trouble sleeping and dizziness, however it's better than not being able to breathe. It doesn't make me agitated and belligerent like Albuterol did. Rinse your mouth after using to get rid of the taste.

    At present the coupon Value is $20 off a month.
