Asthma Treatments

Optimum ways to treat asthma vary. Individuals distinctively react to asthma requiring alternating forms of medication. Sometimes symptoms are delayed, and it takes awhile to figure out the root causes. If you have allergies to common irritants, asthma can occur. By noting what gives you allergies, asthma episodes can sometimes be avoided. The top three asthma treatment plans that work to overcome negative effects are Flovent (corticosteroids or steroid hormones), Albuterol (short-acting beta agonists or rescue medicine), and Xolair (subcutaneous or short needed) for people with allergies and severe asthma. For any treatment options, please check with your physician.
