King Pharmaceuticals To Stop Making Intal Inhalers
King Pharmaceuticals, Inc will soon stop manufacturing INTAL INHALERS (cromolyn sodium inhalation aerosol). This action is not the result of any safety or efficacy issues regarding this product. This decision is based upon many factors, including the inability to reformulate INTAL to a chlorofluorocarbon-free or hydrofluoroalkane (HFA) propellant formulation.
INTAL INHALER is a prophylactic agent indicated in the management of patients with bronchial asthma. Other cromolyn sodium products such as eye drops and solutions for nebulization will continue to be available.
