Get Your Asthma in Check!

Assessing Asthma Control

If you think your asthma may not be under control with your current treatment, it's time to check in with a doctor. With continuous, long-term treatment, most people can keep their asthma in control.1 Visit a doctor about every six months or more frequently if needed, to make sure your asthma plan or your child's asthma plan is working.2 Measure asthma control with the checklist and bring it to your next doctor's appointment to help guide the discussion.

Get Prepared for Your Next Appointment!

Fill out the asthma symptoms tool and asthma checklist to prepare for your or your child's next doctor’s appointment. Make sure you track all symptoms and note any potential triggers.
