Understanding Your Asthma Medications
Your asthma doctor may prescribe two types of medications for you. You can learn more about these asthma treatments when you watch the featured video. The first is a rescue medication. It’s taken when you experience asthma symptoms, such as shortness of breath, coughing, or tightness in the chest.
You may also be prescribed a controller medication, which is intended to prevent symptoms. You’ll take your controller medication every day, regardless of whether you experience symptoms or not. Consistent use is essential for managing the inflammation of the lungs.
