  • ProAir® HFA—a branded SABA—is one of the preferred brands on formulary coverage

Give your patients a rescue inhaler they can count on: ProAir® HFA

  • The only SABA with a dose counter that turns red1
  • Numbers turn red at 20
  • Dose counter background turns completely red at zero1

The Red Inhaler may offer patients more time to use all 200 doses4

  • Up to 24-month expiration* versus up to 12 months out-of-pouch usage for Ventolin® HFA4,5
  • May result in lower annual refill costs for some patients
The expiration date is important. Patients should check the expiration date and replace their inhalers prior to the date shown on the inhaler, or when the counter reaches 0, whichever comes first.1

Make sure the rescue inhaler your patients carry offers flexible storage

  • Carry or store it in any position without affecting dose consistency1,6,7*
  • No need to re-prime if dropped1
    • - This may result in fewer wasted sprays
Just like all albuterol HFA inhalers, ProAir® HFA (albuterol sulfate) should always be actuated, primed, and used in an upright position. Store at room temperature (between 59°F and 77°F).1
