FDA OKs re­turn of Pri­matene Mist asthma in­haler

The Sun Herald - - Business -

A new ver­sion of the once-pop­u­lar asthma in­haler Pri­matene Mist will soon re­turn to U.S. stores.

The Food and Drug Ad­min­is­tra­tion ap­proved the over-the-counter aerosol in­haler late Wed­nes­day. It’s for tem­po­rary relief of mild, in­ter­mit­tent asthma symp­toms in peo­ple ages 12 and older

The orig­i­nal Pri­matene Mist was dis­con­tin­ued seven years ago be­cause the in­haler’s ozone-de­plet­ing pro­pel­lant had been banned.

The new prod­uct de­vel­oped by Am­phastar Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals uses a safer pro­pel­lant.
