Is there a generic version of Proventil HFA?

A generic form of Proventil (albuterol) HFA is not currently available. Due to recent environmental restrictions, chlorofluorocarbon-based (CFCs-based) inhalers have been replaced with hydrofluoroalkane (HFA) inhalers. Do not buy any albuterol inhalation medication that claims to be a generic form of Proventil HFA.
