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.
