The best way to treat asthma varies on the person and how bad their symptoms are. Usually, two main types of medicines are used to treat asthma: Controller medicines: These are taken every day to keep asthma symptoms from happening and to keep the inflammation in the lungs under control. Some of these are biologics, long-acting beta-agonists, oral corticosteroids, and leukotriene stabilizers. Quick-relief medicines, which are also called "rescue medicines," are used as needed to ease fast asthma symptoms or flare-ups. Short-acting beta-agonists, such as albuterol, are often one of them. Along with taking medicines, managing asthma means finding and staying away from allergens or irritants that set off the condition, living a healthy life, and working with a healthcare provider to create an asthma action plan. This plan tells you what to do if your asthma symptoms get worse or if you have an attack. Regular follow-up and tracking with a medical worker are necessary to make sure that asthma is well controlled.
