Talking with Your Doctor About Asthma

If you have asthma, talk to your doctor about:

  • Your asthma treatment goals and how to achieve them
  • Your medications – what they are for, how much to take, and when and how to use them
  • How to use your inhaler and peak flow meter, if you have one
  • Your asthma triggers and how to avoid them
  • Warning signs of an asthma attack and what you should do if your symptoms get worse
