All patients need to have a “quick-relief” medication to treat acute asthma symptoms. Drug therapy for long-term control of asthma is designed to reverse and prevent airway inflammation.

Asthma provides extensive references for researchers and clinicians who need to keep abreast of recent developments in this rapidly expanding field. OTC asthma inhalers are typically not recommended as a replacement for prescription asthma treatment. They are, for the most part, considered viable only for treating mild, intermittent asthma.

The current concept of asthma therapy is based on a stepwise approach, depending on disease severity, and the aim is to reduce the symptoms that result from airway obstruction and inflammation, to prevent exacerbations and to maintain normal lung function.
