Xanax (alprazolam) is a very short-acting drug and there may be better choices. ...Read more

What is the proper treatment of asthma?

Control: Managing asthma is about "control". Most patient's will be on an inhaled steroid medication to control the inflammation in the airways. If this isn't enough, additional medications can be used. Airway dilator medications are used frequently. There are both long-acting and short-acting versions of these.
