FDA Final Rule on MDI Transition
On April 14, 2010 @ 3:33 pm In All Articles,Medications
Four of the medications have already been discontinued: Tilade, Intal, Azmacort and Alupent; and two of the remaining three have a small market share: Aerobid and MaxAir. Combivent is used by patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and by some patients who have both COPD and asthma.
The phase-out dates for each of these can be read here: http://www.fda.gov/NewsEvents/Newsroom/PressAnnouncements/ucm208302.htm.  [^ ]
We expect that an Aerobid HFA replacement will be approved prior to its phase-out. We expect the same for Combivent.
