Treatment Options for Asthma

The treatment options available for asthma patients that help you manage your symptoms better and allow you to live an active and everyday life include:

  1. Inhalers
    Inhalers deliver medication directly to the lungs for quick relief during asthmatic flare-ups. While a rescue inhaler relieves the symptoms during an asthma attack, controller inhalers are used to prevent an attack. For more severe and frequent symptoms, your doctor may prescribe a combination inhaler that, besides providing quick relief during an attack, stops future flare-ups.
  2. Anti-Inflammatory Medicines
    These medicines dilate the airways in the lungs, reduce inflammation and swelling, and decrease mucus production. They include:-Leukotriene Receptor Antagonists: Also known as leukotriene modifiers, they block the effect of leukotrienes, a chemical that causes inflammation in the lungs’ airways.
    -Theophylline: It is a long-acting bronchodilator drug that relaxes the airways in the lungs and enables easier breathing.
    -Corticosteroids: They reduce inflammation and swelling in the lung’s airways and mucus production for long-term asthma management.
    Anticholinergics: They relax the bronchial tubes, making it easier for you to breathe.
  3. Injectables
    Biologic therapy helps patients with severe asthma and is given through an injectable. Immunomodulators regulate your immune system for this treatment and help control the white blood cells that trigger asthma.
  4. Surgery
    Bronchial thermoplasty is an option that your doctor may use for severe asthma symptoms when other medications and therapies do not offer relief. In this procedure, a catheter inserted into the lungs through a bronchoscope delivers thermal heat to muscles in your lungs, preventing them from narrowing and triggering your symptoms.
