Managing Asthma

Health tips

  • Tip one – One of the signs that you need to adjust your treatment is if you wake up during the night or in the early morning coughing or feeling wheezy or short of breath. If you are wheezy during the day and need to use your inhalers more frequently than is normal for you, you should arrange to see your doctor or practice nurse.
  • Tip two – A written asthma action plan includes all the information you need to look after your asthma well, so you’re likely to have fewer symptoms and significantly cut your risk of an asthma attack. Ask at your GP surgery for help to draw one up.
