Talk to your doctor about SPIRIVA
RESPIMAT for asthma
Asthma can vary over time. Because of this, your asthma treatment may need to be adjusted every once in a while. That’s why it’s important to have regular check-ins with your doctor.
During these check-ins, your doctor:
- Evaluates your symptoms
- May make adjustments to your treatment
- Talks about ways to avoid asthma triggers
Before your appointment
Track your symptoms for a few weeks leading up to your appointment. That will help your doctor figure out if you need to make changes to your treatment plan, and it can help you identify your asthma triggers and spot patterns in your symptoms. You can track your symptoms using an app on your phone, a calendar, or even just a notebook.
At your appointment
You should also tell your doctor about any other medications you’re taking, as well as supplements and vitamins. Remember that some over-the-counter products can also affect your asthma and how well your medications work. It may help to write them down, or to take pictures of them on your phone.
After your appointment
One of the most important things you can do to manage asthma is to learn as much as you can about the condition. An easy way to do that is to sign up for our informative emails.
