Keep Albuterol Inhalation Aerosols available!

52 Signatures Goal: 100

ATTN FDA, this petition is on behalf of the people who will suffer. Metered dose inhalers are small, pressurized aerosol devices that deliver a measured dose of a drug from a canister into the mouth for inhalation into the lungs. The drug most often used is known as albuterol in the United States, or salbutamol elsewhere in the world. Metered dose Albuterol inhalation aerosol devices will only be available until December, 2008 in compliance with US & international laws. Do not take away a medicine that helps those with asthma, emphysema, & respitory problems. Because albuterol is fast acting, albuterol metered dose inhalers are used as rescue inhalers for treatment of bronchospasm during acute episodes, lifesaving for some patients at certain times. Do not take away medicine, do away with unnecessary aerosols like air fresheners and such. Albuterol Inhalation Aerosols are inexpensive and necessary. The alternatives are much more expensive and would be unavailable to lower income families.
