Essentially the same: These are 2 forms of the same med. They have slight differences in the dose but the pro-air is a little more. The effectiveness of any product often depends on the level of triggering that set you off in the first place. You should have a discussion with you doc & consider a home peak flow meter to anticipate attacks.
