How Is Asthma Treated?
Each person's asthma is different. You and your healthcare provider will work together to establish the best treatment plan based on your symptoms and needs.
After your healthcare provider diagnoses your asthma, you will be prescribed medicines that help control asthma. By taking the right medicine at the right time, you can:
- Breathe better
- Do more of the things you want to do
- Have fewer asthma symptoms
