What can be done?

The goal of treating asthma and allergies is to control the disease. Your doctor or practitioner will work with you to:

  • Identify triggers and teach you how to avoid them or manage them in your environment.
  • Find the best medication plan to control your symptoms without causing side effects.
  • Develop a disease action plan that is just for you which includes information on when to take medications, what to do if medications are not working and information on who to call and how to contact them when you have questions.
