When back to normal: You can exercise shortly after your asthma symptoms resolve. Use medications prior to exercise. If asthma is triggered by exercise, talk to your doctor.

How long can an asthma attack last?

Indefinitely: Many cases of asthma involve ongoing inflamation of the airways. In these situations, the asthma attack may continue until the inflamation is controlled. Inhaled steroids are the first line of treatment for those who need to use albuterol to reverse asthma symptoms more than twice per week. Unfortunately, scientific studies have suggested that not all asthma patients may respond well to steroids.
