Combivent MDI Inhalers No Longer Available
Under the Clean Air Act, the FDA requires that products containing certain propellants be removed from the market. This includes Combivent MDI, which is being discontinued.
As of July 2013, COMBIVENT RESPIMAT is the only Combivent Inhaler available as a result of the Clean Air Act.
Combivent is used to treat and prevent bronchospasm in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and asthma.
