How to Treat Asthma

Unfortunately, there’s currently no cure for asthma, but there are still ways to manage symptoms and help prevent future attacks. Some of the most common asthma treatments include:

  • Long-term control medications – Often taken daily, these asthma management medications help reduce inflammation and swelling within the airways with the goal of preventing future attacks.
  • Quick-relief medications – Taken during an asthma attack (or sometimes before exercise), these medications help to quickly open up narrowed airways to restore normal breathing.
  • Allergy medications – If allergens are a common cause of your asthma attacks, an allergy medication could help prevent future flare-ups.

If you think you might have asthma, don’t wait to consult with a medical provider—early treatment can help keep asthma from progressing and prevent long-term damage to your lungs.

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
