Asthma – Treatments 

As I’ve just mentioned in a previous section asthma can be effectively controlled by using medicines that come in the form of an inhaler. The inhaler is a small handheld device that administers a spray of medicine tht is breathed in.

There are two main types of inhaler. These are :

  • Relievers are fast acting medicines that can rapidly control the asthma symptoms or attack for a short period of time.
  • These inhalers are for daily use, which reduce the likelihood of an asthma episode.

The doctor may, in some cases, may also prescribe tablets for someone who has asthma.
