Asthma is frequently triggered by allergens, irritants, medications, and extreme weather. Our doctors will work with you to identify the key triggers of your asthma and develop a plan to help you mitigate those triggers.
However, it may be impossible to avoid the triggers of asthma, and therefore medication is often needed. Medications can offer quick relief and long term control. We realize that some patients may be hesitant to take medication because of the possible side effects. Our allergists will work with you to find the right medication or combination to help control your asthma without side effects.
Long-term medications are taken every day regardless of your symptoms. These are often the best way to control your asthma. You should consult with our doctors about what kind of medications you should take along with the appropriate dosage. The overall goal is for you to feel your best with the least amount of medication. You should never change or stop a prescription without consulting with one of our doctors first.
Another treatment used to help control asthma are allergy shots. While this may take several years to be fully effective, your body will be constantly exposed to the triggers that cause your asthma. At first, it will be in small amounts, but over time your body will begin to build up a tolerance to these triggers. As your body develops a tolerance, your asthma symptoms should decrease. Without this treatment you will still be exposed to allergens and will have life long asthma, so consult with our allergists to see if an allergy shot regimen is right for you.
