Controlling Asthma Symptoms

The most common symptoms of an asthma attack are:

COUGHING

SHORTNESS OF BREATH

TIGHTNESS OF THE CHEST

WHEEZING
(a high-pitched, whistling sound)


Asthma control is about more than just treating sudden symptoms. It’s about managing your asthma daily so you have few or no asthma symptoms in the first place. Good control means being able to continue doing the things you like to do with fewer interruptions due to your asthma, fewer asthma symptoms during the day and night, and not having to rely on your rescue medicine/inhaler as much.

Is your asthma under control?

  • Do you experience asthma symptoms more than twice a week?
  • Do your symptoms wake you up at night more than twice a month?
  • Do you use your asthma “rescue” medicine/inhaler more than twice a week?
  • Do your asthma symptoms limit your normal activities?

If you answer “yes” to any of these questions, you may not be in control of your asthma, and it is important that you talk to your doctor to see if a medicine that helps control asthma symptoms, like SYMBICORT, may be right for you.
