YOU can take control of your asthma by knowing what medication to take, how much, when and how you should take it. Your doctor will work with you to find the right medication and amounts for you.
Follow these steps to take control today.
See your doctor regularly to have your asthma reviewed for the right amount and type of medication.
See your pharmacist to learn how to use your inhaler properly or for a six-monthly review of technique. If the inhaler is not used correctly, medication does not get to where it is needed.
Some people will also benefit from knowing their peak flow. This measurement is now offered in store as part of our respiratory checks. This simple test identifies if asthma medication is being used properly or if treatment options should be discussed with your doctor.
