Asthma is a chronic (long-term) breathing problem that narrows the airways in the lungs. It can cause mild to severe:
- Tightness of the chest
- Shortness of breath
An allergic response to something in the environment can trigger asthma symptoms. But some treatments can help you or a loved one control symptoms and prevent problems.
Your Treatment Plan
Partner with specialists who know not all asthma is the same and will tailor your care to you. Depending on your symptoms, goals and other factors, your doctor may recommend an inhaler, oral medications or other treatments.
Turn to our asthma doctors for advanced treatment options. If you have severe asthma, you may benefit from NUCALA® or XOLAIR® injections. These drugs, known as biological medications, change how your immune system works so you have less severe symptoms.
