Treating asthma with ProAir® HFA

A rescue inhaler for asthma

ProAir® HFA is the #1-prescribed rescue inhaler in the U.S.1 It works by relaxing your airways, helping you to breathe.2

The ProAir® HFA rescue inhaler helps people with asthma by3:

  • Delivering a warmer, less forceful, longer-lasting spray
  • Allowing people more time to properly inhale it
  • Providing a consistent dose of medicine when they need it

And ProAir® HFA also comes with a dose counter that tells you2:

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

Find out how ProAir® HFA can help you get the most from your inhaler.

If you need to use ProAir® HFA more than two days a week for reasons other than to help prevent exercise-induced bronchospasm (EIB), your asthma may not be well controlled. To help manage your asthma better, your healthcare provider may prescribe a long-term controller medication for asthma.4

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
