Partner with Your Doctor

Your doctor is your partner in learning about and managing your asthma. Together, you and your doctor should:

  • talk about your asthma treatment goals and how you can reach them
  • develop a written asthma action plan that explains the treatment you need every day and what to do if your asthma symptoms become worse
  • review your asthma medicines so that you understand the purpose of each
  • practice how to take your medicine
  • discuss how to keep track of your symptoms and make decisions about how much medicine to take
  • review the things that make your asthma worse — your "asthma triggers" — and discuss tips on how to avoid them

The more you learn about your asthma and your medicines that treat it, the more you can keep your disease in control.
