However ideally, one should not use a part devised for one device on another unless otherwise specified ( for example - Aerochambers) ...Read more

My Proair albuterol inhaler just reached zero on the dose counter. There is medicine left, can I still use it?
Maybe: It might be that when you reach ZERO on the counter, there is a little bit left, but not a reliable amount per puff. Therefore, when an inhaler is needed, if one has a new one, use the new one. If one has no new one, using the old one would be better than using nothing. One can get a refill when the pharmacy opens. ...Read more

ER: It sounds like the Er is the safest place for you. When your usual medications and rescue medications don't work, you need a close evaluation of your oxygen levels as well as a look at blood work and your lungs. You may need intravenous medicines as well. Most doctors offices are not equipped for this and if you are seriously ill the ER is the best place. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
