18 May 2010 I have had Asthma my whole life, and I take this two times a day. I do not get any side effects from it but sometimes it does not work. I recommend it to anyone with Asthma because it helps me breathe much better.

07 Feb 2009 I've used my inhaler for several years now. For the past couple of years, I haven't really used it too often. When the weather gets really dry, or when I have exercised a little too strenuously, it is effective.
