Asthma is a long-term condition that is common and can cause symptoms such as coughing, wheezing, chest tightness and breathlessness. It is caused by inflammation in the small tubes known as bronchi which can be found in the lungs, which makes them more sensitive than normal.
Although asthma symptoms can be controlled in most people for most of the time, it can be possible for some people will experience more persistent symptoms. Sometimes asthma symptoms may become gradually or suddenly worse, which is known as an asthma attack.
Remember, your final treatment will be decided by our prescribers based on your answers provided within your consultation. You will be asked to indicate a preferred treatment option from a selected list after completion of your consult.
Asthma remedies come in two main types; preventers and relievers.
Reliever inhalers (blue inhalers) are used during asthma attacks to help reduce the inflammation in your airways and ease your symptoms within a few minutes.
Preventative medicines like inhalers and tablets are used every day to help manage your symptoms on a day to day basis with the aim of reducing or preventing asthma attacks.
Common asthma triggers include dust mites, animal fur, exercise and pollen, so reliever and preventative treatments work together to help you manage your condition in any situation.
There are many forms of asthma medication available that can be used to manage symptoms of asthma, including the Ventolin Evohaler which helps to prevent asthma attacks and Montelukast tablets which helps to prevent and reduce symptoms of asthma.
