User Comments about Ventolin HFA
14 Nov 2011 Thank God for Ventolin. I was given ProAir after the Warrick spray was discontinued. I I had to throw the ProAir in the garbage after two puffs. I told the doctor that he should stop prescribing that ineffective piece of garbage to his patients. Doctors are probably getting kick back from the ProAir labs because everyone is complaining but they still keep trying to shove it down their patients throat. Ventolin has been a savior. I also heard that Xopenex is not bad either.
