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!
