Need to see your doc: This is a question best answered by seeing a doctor in person. You need a full history and exam to determine if an asthma inhaler is an appropriate part of your care.

Hard to say: Any medication that is strong enough to do good is strong enough to do bad.Some inhalers are linked to an increase in sudden death when used incorrectly. You say "mimic" which does not mean anything to us.It suggests you self label & are avoiding care by a personal physician
