Albuterol Sulfate HFA Inhalation Aerosol is supplied as a pressurized aluminum canister with a red plastic actuator and white dust cap each in boxes of one. Each canister contains 8.5 g of the formulation and provides 200 actuations (NDC 59310-579-20). Each actuation delivers 120 mcg of albuterol sulfate from the canister valve and 108 mcg of albuterol sulfate from the actuator mouthpiece (equivalent to 90 mcg of albuterol base).
Store between 15°and 25°C (59° and 77°F). Avoid exposure to extreme heat and cold. For best results, canister should be at room temperature before use.
SHAKE WELL BEFORE USE
The red actuator supplied with Albuterol Sulfate HFA Inhalation Aerosol should not be used with the canister from any other inhalation aerosol products. The Albuterol Sulfate HFA Inhalation Aerosol canister should not be used with the actuator from any other inhalation aerosol products.
Once the labeled number of actuations (i.e. 200) has been used, the labeled amount of medication delivered from a canister cannot be assured. As a result, the inhaler should be discarded after 200 actuations, even though the canister may not be completely empty. Never immerse the canister into water to determine how full the canister is (“float test”).
Avoid spraying in eyes. Contents under pressure. Do not puncture or incinerate. Exposure to temperatures above 120°F may cause bursting. Keep out of reach of children.
Albuterol Sulfate HFA Inhalation Aerosol does not contain chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) as the propellant.
