Who should not take Foradil Certihaler?

Do not use Foradil (formoterol) unless you also are using another asthma control medicine, such as a long-term inhaled corticosteroid. This medication should not be used alone to treat your asthma. You may not be able to take Foradil if you have milk allergies or are lactose intolerant, because it contains lactose. Do not use this medication if you are allergic to formoterol or any other ingredient contained in Foradil.  The term "Certihaler" refers to the patented device used to aerosolize Foradil for inhalation; however, the Certihaler has been discontinued and replaced by the Aerolizer.
