With well-controlled asthma, you should only need your inhaler two times per week or less (this does not include using an inhaler before exercising to prevent an asthma attack). You should be symptom-free during routine daily activities.
We recommend an appointment if your asthma is interrupting your lifestyle. Many people suffer through asthma without realizing help is available.
