Just a few weeks ago my mother had her Combivent inhalation Aerosol changed to Combivent Respimat inhalation spray and does not feel it works the way the old Combivent did. She used it as a rescue at least 4xs daily and since this med. has been changed she has taken a shortness to breath and ended up in the hospital for the weekend.Not saying it is the new Combivent but with her saying it isnt as effective she does not use it like she had before.She does her nebulizer 4x or more a day and is on 2 other inhalers. My question is, is there another rescue inhaler out there comparable to the old Combivent style fast acting just as good on the market. She has a follow up in 2 weeks with her primary doctor but we would love some advice or another kind to bring up to him. Thankyou! Amanda
