Your Asthma Action Plan
An asthma action plan is sometimes called an asthma management plan. It is written for an individual person and provides a written record of all your prescribed asthma medications. The asthma action plan explains in simple point form which medications to use at which dosage during periods when :
- your asthma is well controlled
- there is a deterioration in your asthma as symptoms increase
- you experience an acute asthma attack
Our pharmacists are able to help you form an asthma action plan for yourself or your child (see also childhood asthma).
From time to time we run asthma information days - please ask instore if you would like to be informed of these, or follow us on facebook.
The Asthma Society of Ireland provides more useful information on asthma in both adults and children and can be accessed via www.asthmasociety.ie
