Supplies of Over-the-Counter Inhalers Dwindling

YAKIMA, Wash. - If you have asthma, you'll want to stock up on inhalers.  You may no longer be able to buy them over-the-counter.

A local pharmacist says inhalers like Primatene Mist and Bronchaid may no longer be manufactured.  Many stores in Yakima have already run out, and it's unclear whether they'll get more in stock.

Neal Lee of Medicine Mart says it has to do with demands by the FDA, that are costly for drug-makers to comply with.
