If your asthma is not well-controlled, you may need to discuss other treatment options with your allergy doctor. If your asthma is reasonably under control, you likely experience symptoms and require your rescue inhaler no more than twice per week, with the exception of exercise. You should also be able to sleep normally and avoid visits to the emergency room.
To determine whether a physician would consider your asthma well controlled, watch this video. The board-certified allergy doctor in this video also explains the indicators that your doctor looks for to evaluate the management of your asthma.
