Medicines for treating asthma
Medicines for treating asthma can be classified as relievers or preventers. Relievers work quickly to help with symptoms. Preventers help in the long run to reduce airway inflammation. These medicines make breathing easier for people with asthma.
Using medicines at school
If your child is ready to start school or returning to school after the holidays, it’s important to review any medicines and management plans. You, your child and their teachers should all know what medicines your child takes, where they are kept and how to use them – especially in an emergency.
