3 doctors agree
In brief: No
Intal (cromolyn) is a mast cell stablizer and has stopped being produced because it only came as a cfc inhaler.
Once it was mandated that all inhalers be hfa-based, it stopped being stocked in us pharmacies. The company who made it did not pursue making it as an hfa. Some of my patients have been able to get it through canada.
