What happens in asthma?
How your preventer medicine helps
My medications are
Asthma inflames the airways. During an asthma attack, the air Your preventer medicine reduces the redness and swelling in your airways and dries up passages (airways) of the lungs become inflamed, swollen and the mucus. Preventers take time to work and need to be taken every day, even when you narrowed. Thick mucus may be produced and breathing becomes difficult. This leads to coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath.
Preventer medications are: Qvar (beclomethasone), Flixotide (fluticasone), Intal Forte Asthma Triggers
CFC-Free (sodium cromoglycate), Pulmicort (budesonide), Singulair (montelukast) and Tilade CFC-Free (nedocromil).
Common asthma triggers are house dust mite, pollens, animal fur, moulds, tobacco smoke, and cold air. It is unusual but some foods How your reliever medicine helps
Your reliever medicine relaxes the muscles around the airways, making the airways wider Exercise is a common asthma trigger but can be well managed with and breathing easier. It works quickly to relieve asthma symptoms, so it is essential for pre-exercise medication and warm-up activities.
Symptom Controller
Reliever medications are: Airomir, Asmol, Epaq and Ventolin (all brands of salbutamol) How your symptom controller helps
Combination Medication
Symptom controllers can help people who still get symptoms even when they take regular preventer medicines. If you need a symptom controller, it should be taken with your preventer medication. It should not be taken instead of a preventer.

However, they are not good for quick relief of symptoms so they should not be used Symptom controllers are: Foradile and Oxis (both brands of eformoterol), and Serevent There are combination medications that combine a symptom controller and a preventer in
