Yes: Albuterol provides quick relief of asthma symptoms and helps to reverse the reactivity of the airway. One non-steroidal controller medication is called Singulair ( montelukast ).

Steroids for asthma: Hi medius6, in terms of steroids, there are many options out there for treatment of asthma. There are inhalers, pills ,and iv forms used. Your doctor will likely recommend a steroid inhaler for persistent asthma symptoms to take once to twice a day. Saving the pills and iv drugs for the bad times. Bronchodilators(not steroids)like albuterol, are a mainstay of treatment as well. Hope that helps.
