Aerobid® (flunisolide inhaler) is a drug used to prevent asthma attacks. After June 30, 2011, Aerobid inhalers were no longer made, dispensed, or sold in the United States because this product contains chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), chemicals that deplete the ozone layer. Thus, if you are still taking this medication, know that you will not be able to continue using it. Talk to your healthcare provide about alternative medicines that will work in your situation.
