Be Prepared for Med Changes for Patients With Asthma

Patients with asthma will have new criteria for starting a daily inhaled steroid.

We usually see these patients start a daily inhaled steroid or "controller" med (beclomethasone, etc) when they need a PRN "reliever" med (salbutamol) more than THREE times per week.

Now new Canadian guidelines recommend starting a controller med earlier...such as when a reliever med is used more than TWO times per week.
