Severity and frequency of asthma symptoms can
vary greatly among individuals. Asthma treatment is individualized and
medications selected for therapy will vary based on the seriousness and regularity
of asthma symptoms. In cases of severe asthma, you may need more intensive
treatment than most asthma patients. It may take a few tries to identify the
right treatment plan for you, so it’s important to monitor your symptoms and be
able to determine if your asthma medications are keeping your condition
controlled. Make sure you talk to a healthcare provider honestly about symptom
severity and frequency so the correct treatment can be chosen for you.
