Asthma inhalers, medicines and treatments

Your GP or asthma nurse will prescribe treatments based on your individual asthma symptoms and needs, making sure you’re given the lowest dose possible to help you stay well.

The aim is to help you stay symptom free so you can get on with your life without asthma getting in the way.

Here you can find answers to any questions or concerns you have about your asthma medicines: how they work, the best way for you to take them, and how you can get into a good routine with your preventer medicine.

You can also get some reassurance about possible side effects.
