In brief: CONTROLLER MEDS

In my opinion Controller meds which include inhaled Steroids with long acting Bronchodilaters also inhaled in combinations if taken correctly work best and sometimes one can add Montelucast(Singular) to that to control Asthma and reduce the incidents of acute attacks and exacerbations to minimum For acute attacks reliever meds like Albuterol or Levalbuteral are used with oral steroids sometimes

In brief: Asthma treatment

Asthma is a disease that has both broncho-constrictive and inflammatory components.
Hence the medications used are beta-agonists (example albuterol) and/or steroids. Meds provided via inhaler or nebulizer. Only a physician can prescribe such medications.

In brief: Depends

If you are diagnosed with persistent asthma, an inhaler called a "controller" may be needed.
There are oral drugs which can be added to this as well. For attacks an inhaler called a "rescue inhaler" is used. This type is used for persistent as well as intermittent (occasional attacks). Your physician is the best judge of what is to be used.
