Your treatment plan for asthma depends on the severity of your symptoms and the factors that trigger your asthma. Typically, medications are useful for quickly reducing inflammation and opening your airways to help you breathe better.
You can use fast-acting inhaled medications for sudden asthma attacks and your doctor may also recommend long-term asthma control medications to prevent asthma-related breathing issues.
If you have allergy-triggered asthma, your West Hills Allergy & Asthma Associates provider may also recommend allergy medications or immunotherapy with allergy shots to desensitize your body to suspected allergens.
