By providing insulin for the body and helping remove sugar from the blood, Exubera® (inhaled insulin) can help control blood sugar levels in people with type 1 or type 2 diabetes. The drug comes in blister packets that contain the powder, which is inhaled through the mouth within 10 minutes before each meal. Side effects are possible with Exubera, such as coughing and respiratory tract infections.
 
In October 2007, Pfizer announced it will stop making Exubera. This decision was voluntary and was not based on any safety concern; Pfizer states that Exubera has not met its expectations in terms of sales. Starting in October 2007, Exubera will be available for an additional three months, which will give people enough time to change from Exubera to another type of insulin or other diabetes medication.
