Action Plan

Action Plan * Asthma controllers are medications that “control” the underlying inflammation in your breathing tubes. * Inhaled corticosteroids are the most common type of medicine used for this purpose. * In order for corticosteroids to work, they have to be inhaled deep into the breathing tubes twice daily. * A new class of drugs has been developed to control inflammation: they are called biologics and are injected weekly or monthly into the skin of your abdomen.   Although there are a number of medications used for asthma control, the most common type is an inhaled corticosteroid (ICS). This type of steroid does not make big muscles or affect sexual function. It works by tamping down inflammation in your airways. These medications are either liquids that are sprayed from a pressurized canister into the airway or they are delivered as dry powder, inhaled using a specialized canister. They work by landing on the surface of your airways, seeping into the cells, and suppressing the run-away inflammation. There are several chemical compounds that are used including: fluticasone, beclomethasone, mometasone, flunisolide, ciclesonide, and budesonide. Each comes in several strengths and each is administered every day to keep a lid on the ongoing inflammation. When we have the dose right, you will not need your rescue inhaler more than once a month!
