Just one time in the morn and im good till the next day and sometimes even two days. Great product!!!!!! Thats all just wanted to say thanks for making life easier.”   ~A.C.

 

“Thank you so much for this product! I used PM for years as it worked better and it was cheaper than most rx inhalers. I had been out of my inhaler for 3 days and was gasping for air. Bought this product this morning and I can FINALLY BREATH! Thanks agains!” ~ Caleb Hartfield

 

“Omg! I have never had an asthma product work that fast before. Thank you so  much for such an awesome product.” ~ Paul

 

“Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I went out to our all-night cvc as soon as I read about asthmanefrin. I’ve been SO miserable without my primatene mist I can’t begin to describe it too you.
The nebulizer is a bit of a pain but considering how I was living, works just fine. The medicine has given me my active life back. Bless you and thank you again. Merry Christmas!” ~ Happy Customer

Happy Asthmanefrin Customers!

 
“So, I’ve just started my second refill box (third box counting starter kit). I don’t have severe asthma but suffer episodes when there are too many triggers. I try to control the episodes with my behavior but sometimes that just doesn’t work and I just cannot breathe. I used Primatine for many years and had a hard time when it disappeared from the market. My experience with Asthmanefrin has been great. It works immediately, isn’t as harsh as Primatine and I’m finding that it’s actually costs me less to use. The initial kit is pricey but the product lasts me at least twice, maybe three times, as long as Primatine did. I’ve not had any problems with the inhaler, thank goodness, because that would be frustrating. I’m a happy customer.” – Ellie Martin

 

“I tried it and works awesome. Total lifesaver considering my pharmacy dropped the ball big time and didn’t refill my ProAir RX today. I found out at 6 pm, well after my doctor’s office closed. I was so upset, but I recalled reading something about your product. I asked Kroger about it, but they didn’t have it, Walgreens told me there was no such thing (!!!) but finally Walmart knew what I was talking about and sold it to me. Thank you, you stopped a possible trip to the ER tonight.” ~ Happy Customer

New Posts from Happy Asthmanefrin Customers!

“I want to first thank you for the professional manner in which you have handled the minor problems to date. I also want to tell you that your product is one of the best I have used in my lifelong personal treatment of asthma. It is not just the design but also the quality of the product, its delivery system and more so how I feel afterwards. In addition, I use much less of the total medication than prior products.” – David Zimmer

 

“Thank you again your product is great I have been struggling to find a replacement for primatene mist and i saw your commercial thank you im breathing again!” –Wayne

 

I just wanted to let you all know how satisfied I am with your product and how glad I am that another product compared to primatene came out. It works wonders with me and I love it! Thank you! -Happy Asthmanefrin Customer!

Feedback From Happy Asthmanefrin Customers!

“Great product. Just couldn’t get the same effect from the prescription albuterol medicines. It is a lifesaver. 
Thank you so much for developing this product.”

 

“I am so happy this is back! I am 60 years old and started using this when I was 6!! I do not recall why I started using Primatene Mist, but since that has gone away – I am thrilled this is back on the market! I saw this in our local Wal-Mart and was shocked, amazed and thrilled beyond words! THANK YOU!!”

 

“I am so glad that there is now another product on the market. I have had breathing problems for 5 years and the drs weren’t sure exactly what it was so they just prescribed the expensive inhalers. when i lost my health insurance 2 years a go i started using Primatene Mist which helped a little. Now this comes along and it is much better. The first time i used it i got 10 hours of fairly normal breathing. Now I use it 3 – 4 times a day and can now perform the normal tasks i haven’t been able to for 5 years. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”

Asthmanefrin Customer Response

“I just bought this product at the Walmart in Roseville, MI. It may seem pricier than Primatene but the cost is reasonable when you consider the refill (30 vials) is under $30 and should last longer than one Primatene inhaler. I don’t have severe asthma and only need this occasionally but I actually prefer it to Primatene. It acts fast for me and isn’t as harsh as Primatene was. I’m happy with this product.” -Ellie Martin
