Flunisolide Inhaler (Aerobid)

The flunisolide inhaler (Aerobid®) is a prescription medication that is no longer being made.
 
Why was this asthma medication taken off the market? As of June 30, 2011, the United States stopped making, selling, and dispensing the inhaler due to environmental concerns. The flunisolide inhaler contained chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), chemicals known to deplete the ozone layer. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) removed this product from the market in compliance with the Montreal Protocol on Substances That Deplete the Ozone Layer.
 
If you were previously using the flunisolide inhaler, talk to your healthcare provider about possible alternatives.
