Also Known As: Epinephrine-inhailed, Primatene mist

Primatene Mist is a trade name for an epinephrine metered-dose inhaler sold over-the-counter in the United States for the relief of bronchial asthma. It is manufactured by Armstrong Pharmaceuticals,[1] a company based in Canton, Massachusetts and a subsidiary of Amphastar Pharmaceuticals, located in Rancho Cucamonga, California.[2]

Because Primatene Mist contains chlorofluorocarbon, it can no longer be prescribed or sold.[3] This ban was unsuccessfully challenged in the United States Senate in November 2011.[4]
