Oh great, you can feel it coming on. It becomes a little harder to get air. And when you take a breath, you wheeze and start to cough. Your asthma is acting up. If you’ve been diagnosed with mild to moderate asthma, you know how important it is to have an asthma rescue inhaler on hand at all times. And it’s probably the first thing you reach for when your symptoms flare. But did you know that you can refill your asthma inhaler prescription online without a doctor’s visit? 

Managing mild to moderate asthma

Asthma is a chronic condition. While there’s no cure for asthma, symptoms can be managed. And an important part of any asthma management plan is to identify your asthma triggers. What are the things and activities that cause you to experience asthma symptoms? Maybe you notice your asthma is worse when the temperature dips and the air is cold and dry. Or maybe your symptoms flare in the spring when seasonal allergies set in and pollen counts soar.  

By understanding what sets your asthma off, you can take steps to avoid these things. But let’s face it, there will likely be times when you can’t avoid your asthma triggers. For example, you can’t control the weather. And, if your three year old gets a cold, your sniffles and sneezes will soon follow. These are the times when your rescue inhaler comes in really handy. Thankfully, you can quickly get an asthma flare under control by using your inhaler.  

It’s important to always follow the instructions you received when you were prescribed your inhaler. In some cases, your provider may recommend that you use your rescue inhaler to prevent an asthma flare. Maybe the elevator isn’t working and you have to take the stairs. Or it’s really hot and humid out and you’re planning to spend the day at the beach. If you know you’ll be doing something that triggers your asthma, using a rescue inhaler can help prevent an asthma flare.   

Breathe easier with a prescription rescue inhaler

When you have mild to moderate asthma, you shouldn’t need to use your rescue inhaler on a regular basis. But when you need it – you need it. That’s why it’s really important to make sure you always have a rescue inhaler on hand. Traveling or planning a night out with friends? Do you have a rescue inhaler at the ready? If it’s been awhile since you renewed your prescription, it’s a good idea to be safe and make sure you have a full inhaler.  

As long as your asthma is under control, you don’t need to make a doctor’s appointment to get an asthma inhaler refill. You can refill your prescription asthma inhaler online.
