Pros:Works great if you have nothing else.

Cons:It can cause heart problems.

The Bottom Line: Avoid Primatene like the plague. That is if you value your heart.


Primatene-miracle or killer drug?




Primatene Bronchial Mist and other brands like it (such as Bronch Aid Mist) have been around for a long time, literally decades. Lots of people use it for their asthma and get a lot of relief from it. In that respect it is a miracle. But is it really?

I tried it once but through it away after one use. Why? Because my doctor put me straight to Primatene. Primatene came out on the market at a time when the FDA guidelines on a product like this were a bit more lax. So today Primatene is protected by a grandfather clause.

Why am I saying this about a medication that helps a lot of asthmatics? It is a good medication and helps a lot of people. It is protected by this grandfather clause but it can also some heart damage, like arrhythmia, heart murmurs, and worse. The list goes on. In people with Parkinson’s disease it can cause rigidity and tremors (make them worse?).

Some side effects can include tremors and could put people at risk for CVA’s (Cerebralvascular Accidents, also called stroke.).

While Primatene is a great medication, it should be used with caution or under a doctor’s care. Be sure you know what you’re taking.
