Asthma - Medications

Doctors usually prescribe medications to help treat asthma. Medications used for asthma treatment include those that control the asthma and those used to provide quick relief during an asthma attack.

If your doctor prescribes medications, it is important that you use them as directed. Do not stop taking them unless told to do so by your doctor. Otherwise a dangerous asthma attack could occur.

Each person has different medication needs. That’s why it is important to discuss your medications with your doctor.
