There are different medications available to help manage e-asthma.

Medication options include:

Controller or maintenance medications

  • These medications are taken every day, even if you feel well. They work long-term to help prevent asthma symptoms and asthma attacks.

Biologic medications

  • These medications inhibit certain parts of the immune system that trigger inflammation, a key cause of severe asthma symptoms.

Rescue or quick-relief medications

  • These medications are only taken when needed, for quick relief or during an asthma attack. They help open up your lungs by relaxing the airway muscles.

Oral steroids

  • These medications are only used in cases of severe airway swelling, to help reduce swelling, redness, and mucus in the airways.
