ProAir° HFA (albuterol sulfate) rescue inhaler with dose counter

ProAir® HFA (albuterol sulfate) is specially designed to:

Help your medicine get to where it needs to be

Rather than provide an abrupt blast of medicine,1,2 ProAir® HFA is specially designed to deliver medicine in a way that gives you more time to breathe it in. The ProAir® HFA spray is:1

  • Warmer
  • Less forceful
  • Longer in duration

Count every dose

The ProAir® HFA dose counter will tell you:2

  • How many doses you have left
  • When it's time to replace your inhaler. The counter numbers turn red, letting you know it's time to refill your prescription

Help you stay active

ProAir® HFA is perfect on the go. It:

  • Doesn't need to be stored in a moisture-resistant pouch
  • Doesn't need to be stored upright to provide a consistent dose
  • Doesn't need to be reprimed if you drop it*

Plus ProAir® HFA is designed to offer up to a 24 month's expiration. So you may be able to use the inhaler for up to two years or 200 doses, whichever comes first.2**

*ProAir® HFA must be primed if you have not used it for more than 14 days, and dosed with the mouthpiece down. It should be stored between 59ºF and 77ºF.

**The expiration date of your inhaler is important. You should check your expiration date and replace your inhaler prior to the date shown on your inhaler canister.

Important Safety Information

  • If your symptoms become significantly worse when you use ProAir® HFA, contact your doctor immediately. This may indicate either a worsening of your asthma or a reaction to the medication, which may rarely occur with the first use of a new canister of ProAir® HFA. Either of these could be life-threatening
  • What to tell your doctor before using ProAir® HFA: If you have a heart, blood, or seizure disorder, high blood pressure, diabetes, or an overactive thyroid, be sure to tell your doctor. Also make sure your doctor knows all the medications you are taking – especially heart medications and drugs that treat depression – because some medications may interfere with how well your asthma medications work. Do not exceed the recommended dose
  • Side effects associated with ProAir® HFA included headache, rapid heart beat, pain, dizziness, and irritation of the throat and nose
