How do you treat asthma?

If you are diagnosed with asthma, your doctor may design a treatment that can recognize your triggers to avoid them and track your airway to control the symptoms. Although your doctor may prescribe you an inhaler for immediate relief from a flare-up, living a healthy life can outgrow asthma. 

The quick-relief medication is a rapid treatment that includes short-acting beta-agonists, Anticholinergic agents and corticosteroids. The short-acting beta-agonists include albuterol and levalbuterol that are taken using a portable inhaler.

The anticholinergic agents include ipratropium and tiotropium. They relax the inflamed airway and make it easier to breathe. Likewise, the corticosteroids include prednisone and methylprednisolone that relieves the inflamed airway.

Besides this, if you had an asthma attack because of an allergy, your doctor may prescribe you allergy shots or biologics in addition to other medicines. 

In case of severe asthma that cannot be controlled with medication, the doctor can suggest Bronchial Thermoplasty. This treatment heats the airway with the help of electrodes to smoothen the muscles. An uninflamed smoothen airway does not tighten during an allergic reaction and reduces the chance of an asthma attack. 

If you are diagnosed with asthma, your doctor can recommend an action plan that is inclusive of medication, lifestyle changes and become a part of a support group. Besides this, some alternative medicine may control asthma. Ayurveda, Yoga, Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha, Sowa-Rigpa and Homoeopathy are approved in India that suggest treatments to control chronic inflammatory disorder. However, as these methods are not studied like modern medicine, their authenticity cannot be claimed.
