Frequently Asked Questions
Asthma is a common condition that affects the airways. The typical symptoms are wheeze, cough, chest tightness, and shortness of breath. Symptoms can range from mild to severe. Asthma can be aggravated at certain times of the year and typically gets worse with physical exertion and stress. Blue reliever inhaler treatment usually works well to ease the symptoms.
Asthma is usually controlled by a combination of steroid (brown inhaler) and short acting bronchodilator (blue reliever inhaler) which comes in a strength of 100mcg. These asthma inhalers are dosed to tailor suit your individual needs and your symptoms should be reassessed regularly to ensure they are stable. The blue asthma reliever inhaler should only be used when necessary as overuse of the blue inhaler can make your asthma worse.
