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. Inhaler treatment usually works well to ease and prevent 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 over use of this inhaler can make your asthma worse.

Like with all prescription medication, there are side effects of asthma inhalers you need to be aware of. The 100mcg blue reliever inhaler can cause tremors and headaches if used too frequently. Using the blue asthma inhaler too frequently can also make your asthma worse in the long run. Our e-Surgery prescribers will make sure that the blue inhaler is safe for you to take for your asthma.
