Refill prescription: Every person with asthma should have a quick relief inhaler (like albuterol) to treat acute symptoms. Similarly, daily controller inhaler medications work best when taken daily. Most inhalers now come with a dose counter, so it is easy to know when to obtain/call for a refill. In the mean time, avoid asthma triggers.
