Primatene Mist Medication
Guaifenesin: Yes. Primatene is an otc bronchodilator called ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate). Guaifenesin is an expectorant that helps to thin and loosen secretions. Together, they can both help with some asthma, but they are not enough. You need a controller, or anti-inflammatory medication also. Some varieties of Guaifenesin come in combination with pseudoephedrine (ephedrine sulfate); don't take that version with primatene pills: both are stimulants. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Primatene mist has been taken of the shelves. This was a medicine that worked for a lot of people without a perscription. Now im looking at $58 dolla?
Good riddance: Primatine was inhaled adrenaline. It worked fast, lasted about 15 seconds, and was very dangerous. The fact that you used it without problems simply means you won that game of "russian roulette". Treatment of asthma requires you treat the underlying problem. Primatine only covered up the symptoms, and not even very well. If it was developed today the fda would have shot it down immediately. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Removed from market: There are currently no over the counter asthma inhalers in the us. The manufacturers of primatine are petitioning the fda to keep it available. No actions as of yet. Available prescription rescue inhalers more specific with fewer side effects. Recently a new otc inhaler has been released. It is called asthmanefrin. I recommend you speak with your physician before starting any medications. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: I am unfamiliar with a tablet form of primatene, only an inhalational form sold otc as a bronchodilator. Primatene is Epinephrine and has a heightened risk of causing significant patient harm when used in error. Although one of its side effects is anorexia (loss of appetite), management of obesity is not a labeled or unlabeled use of this drug. ...Read more

Is it ok to take primatene tablets? I have really bad allergies and was prescribed singulair (montelukast) two years ago. Zyrtec does not help me. Symptoms persist and now i also have chest tightness and i squeek when i breathe at night.
I used primeatene mist. Now ventolin. I'm now using the new med 3 to 4 times a day vs 1x a week before. Can the new med be causing more attacks?
Probably NOT: Primatene-mist is an Adrenalin (epinephrine) short-acting 'rescue' inhaler. Ventolin (albuterol) is another short-acting inhaler but is more selective on the bronchioles in the lungs. Most pulmonologists agree ventolin (albuterol) is a better medication for your asthma because of 'this selectivity'. So, now if you need ventolin more often , your asthma is 'out of control' --time to get help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
