There are two different forms of treatment that you could use to treat your asthma.
Your doctor will decide which form, or even both, should be used to help you with your condition.
Inhalers are the most common form of asthma treatment that you could find. The inhaler allows you to take a small dose of medication because it is taken only when you need it and it will go directly to the source of the problem.
The medicine will not have to travel through your entire bloodstream and it will be effective right away.
The other form of common asthma treatment is tablet form. This is a higher dose which will need to be regularly taken to help keep your bronchi from becoming inflamed. Even if you are using drugs, you need to still carry around an inhaler in the event of an emergency asthma attack.
You could also end up using a nebulizer, which takes the medicine and converts it into a fine mist which makes it easy to breathe in. This form is most common in elderly and very young patients who have trouble breathing in with an inhaler.
Any of these treatments will make living with asthma much easier for anyone.
