Don’t let asthma symptoms stop you from enjoying the moment

Asthma inhaler – symptoms creep up gradually

Asthma symptoms can get in the way of everyday life – which is why you shouldn’t put up with them. Sometimes they can creep up so gradually, you don’t even notice how much they’re affecting you.5,6 Before long, wheezing when you exercise, or waking in the night with a tight chest becomes your “normal”.5

Three of four people think their asthma is controlled

In fact, almost three out of four people who think their asthma is controlled, may actually just be ignoring symptoms – accepting them as “normal” rather than speaking to their doctor.7

Take action – talk to your doctor

Sound familiar? If so, it’s definitely time to take action. After all, symptoms can be a sign that your asthma is not controlled.8 So don’t wait for them to strike – talk to your doctor about daily treatment today.7
