Taking your asthma medication regularly can prevent flare-ups in the future.

Do you have asthma? Do you take your medication as prescribed?

Unfortunately, it’s common for patients to fail to take their asthma medication correctly. They may take it erratically or just skip it.

Asthma symptoms can be misleading. Patients may quit taking their medication because they feel fine.  All it takes is a trigger such as a cold, allergy, chemical irritant or air pollution to send you into the danger zone. Skipping your medication, even when you don’t have symptoms, could mean more flare-ups and worsened asthma in the future.
