Why ProAir® HFA?

ProAir HFA (albuterol sulfate) is an asthma inhaler indicated for kids, with a dose counter

ProAir® HFA:

Counts your doses

The ProAir® HFA dose counter is a rescue inhaler with a dose counter and numbers that turn red when it’s nearly empty.1 So you know:

  • How many doses you have left
  • When it's time to replace your inhaler

Helps you stay active with asthma

ProAir® HFA travels with you, even if you're going somewhere with a child with asthma. The ProAir® HFA inhaler:

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

*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.1

Up to two years expiration

ProAir® HFA offers up to 24 months before expiration. So you may be able to use the inhaler for up to two years or 200 doses, whichever comes first.1**

**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.1

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
