The severity of asthma can vary, and asthma often requires changes in your treatment to control it. To ensure that you are getting the proper treatment, you have to continuously monitor and evaluate the disease and communicate with your doctor.
Know the symptoms of poorly controlled asthma—wheezing, cough, chest tightness, or shortness of breath. Having a written record of what to do during an asthma attack (asthma action plan) will give you guidelines for increasing medicine if your or your child’s asthma starts to get out of control.
We DO NOT treat active asthma attacks. Please seek medical attention immediately if you are experiencing trouble breathing, persistently wheezing or coughing, chest tightness, feeling panicky, sweaty face, having a fever or bloody or yellow-green sputum cough.
