I and it really struck a chord for me. My doc has always given me a written plan of "take this, if this happens, do this, etc." But that was not always sufficient. I was still trying to interpret how I was feeling because a lot was not based on hard numbers. My current plan/meds is quite complex and included other meds in addition to several different types of inhalers!
Unlike many treatments in medicine where a person can take a single pill once or twice a day for treatment of asthma, it can be more complex. For example, there are several types of inhalers which are used. Some inhalers are to immediately relieve the symptoms of asthma while others are used to help prevent asthma attacks from occurring in the first place. If someone uses the inhaler designed to prevent attacks when they are having an attack it doesn’t do any good.
This line in particular was
Having medications and not knowing how to use them is almost as bad as not having medications in the first place.
Do you have an ? Is it written out in this style? My action plan includes also things like how to pretreat before exercise and what to do if I get sick (cold, allergy flare, etc). How do you know which meds to take and when?
