Are over-the-counter inhalers good for you or should you get a prescription?

In brief: In general not good
In general otc inhalers are not great.
Like otc nasal sprays that can cause rebound and problems if used for more than a few days in a row. If you need something to help you breath you need to see a doctor.

There are numerous causes of breathing problems... allergies, sinus infections, reflux disease, primary lung problems and cardiac conditions. See your M.D. right away.

In brief: Prescription
If you are having difficulty breathing on a regular basis, i would definitely get this checked out by a doctor, get a diagnosis, and get a prescription.
