What's Inside Your Inhaler? New Regulations Go Into Effect January 1st
According to Nancy Sander, president and founder of Allergy & Asthma Network Mothers of Asthmatics (AANMA), between now and December 31 of this year "millions of patients will need to obtain a new prescription for a non-CRC bronchodilator inhaler. They will need new instructions for using the inhaler that include inhalation technique, cleaning, priming and when to use it."
The AANMA is trying to get the word out that more than 50,000 new prescriptions must be written before the end of this year. And AANMA has asked that the above flier be printed out and placed in public places.
