Nonprescription inhaler effective for asthma

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - In a small study of patients with nighttime asthma, a nonprescription inhaler containing epinephrine was nearly as effective as a prescription inhaler dispensing albuterol in terminating an acute asthma flare-up.

It is widely believed that nonprescription epinephrine inhalers are less effective and have more adverse effects on the heart than prescription drugs like albuterol, Dr. Leslie Hendeles and colleagues write in the Annals of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology.
