In brief: Inhaled steroids

For all ages, the most effective and preferred treatment for persistent asthma is daily use of inhaled corticosteroids.
These are the recommendation of the national guidelines to treat asthma last published in 2007. There are many available and come in inhaler, nebulizer and dry powder inhaler.

In brief: Maintainence...

Most asthmatics require a bronchodilator as well as steroid inhalers.
Further maintainence therapy depends on the asthmatic's individual symptoms and triggers. Discuss your maintainence therapy with your doctor, including instructions on what to do for an acute exacerbation.
