I can't remember the name of it I think it was Atrovent. It was a combination type inhaler, all I know is just about killed me and for a long time we couldn't figure out why. I know I have heard friends talk about others that use peanut fillers. My boyfriend's mom uses one that says not to take if you are allergic to peanuts, don't know which one but I remember her mentioning it to me. I am lucky I have a great pharmacy that checks the inactive ingredients for me on just about everything. I know Serevent and Flovent both have soy as fillers. Serevent doesn't bother me but flovent almost sent me to the hospital! I have found that I have to read the ingredients almost everytime I get a script filled anymore because of the alerts my pharmacists gets over the computer. I wish we could make people wake up and realize what they are doing to us.

Atrovent inhalers have soy as an ingredient but they do have a warning on them for people with PA because of the cross reactivity of soy and peanut. They do not contain peanut ingredients and should be fine for people who are PA but NOT soy allergic.
