Is Your or Your Child’s Asthma Controlled?

Rules of Two

  • Does he take his “quick relief (rescue/reliever) inhaler” more than two times a week?
  • Does she awaken at night with asthma symptoms more than two times a month?
  • Do you refill his “quick relief (rescue/reliever) inhaler” more than two times a year?

If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, your child’s asthma is NOT UNDER CONTROL. Talk to your doctor about your asthma!
