I just saw another recall, this one for an Albuterol inhaler, Ventolin.
If you're not sure what your rescue inhaler is called (most people just go by the color), Ventolin is the greyish- blue one just above the word "asthma" in the photo.
If you have one of those, check the lot and date for a recall.
Newsmax Health reports:
"GSK Plc. is voluntarily recalling more than 593,000 Ventolin asthma inhalers from U.S. hospitals, pharmacies, retailers and wholesalers due to a defect that may cause them to deliver fewer doses of the medicine than indicated, the British drugmaker said on Tuesday."
The FDA (Federal Drug Administration) has a link with the specifics of the recall.
Code Information:Lot #: 6ZP9848
If your inhaler falls under that lot # or expiration date, call your pharmacy or doctor. You will want to make sure you get a replacement as soon as possible!Exp 04/18
You don't EVER want to be without rescue medication. Ironically enough, I am having a hard time typing this because I just used my nebulizer for a breathing treatment and my hands are REALLY shaky.
Asthma can be sooooo much fun!
Good luck and keep breathing my friends!
