In response to reported drug shortages for albuterol products in the Bronchodilators, Short-Acting Beta Agonist Inhalers drug class, VDP temporarily removed the non-preferred status from the generic formulations on March 20. VDP will reverse this change in status because we determined sufficient availability in the market. VDP made this determination after verifying the current availability of the preferred products ProAir and Proventil, as well as generic albuterol products through multiple sources such as ASHP, FDA, manufacturers, wholesalers, and pharmacies in various regions around Texas.

The preferred PDL options are as follows:

NDC Drug Name
00085113204 PROVENTIL HFA 90 MCG INHALER
59310057922 PROAIR HFA 90 MCG INHALER

VDP will restore the non-preferred status on the drugs listed below because of sufficient product availability. Contact vdp-formulary@hhsc.state.tx.us with comments or questions.
