It’s important for asthma sufferers to manage their condition with a primary care doctor. Fortunately, online doctors like PlushCare now exist, which allow patients to get treatment from board-certified doctors from phone or computer.

Asthma Diagnosis and Prescriptions with PlushCare

To find the best treatment path, your doctor will evaluate your personal health history and ask you a series of questions about your symptoms. The doctor may also guide you through the process of allergy testing to find allergic tendencies. After undergoing a diagnosis, a doctor will normally prescribe you an inhaler. If lung function improves, asthma is typically confirmed. You should continue with regular check ups and prescription refills.

 

PlushCare doctors are able to write prescriptions for short acting and long acting inhalers, which are the two major classes of asthma medications. Short acting inhalers: used for the immediate treatment of an asthma attack, include Albuterol, Proair HFA, Ventolin and Xopenex. Long acting inhalers: suppress symptoms of asthma and improve your lung capacity over time, include Flovent, Formoterol, Advair, Symbicort and Theophylline.

Treatment Options

Treating Asthma

Medications, typically administered via inhaler, are used to prevent asthma attacks or to help stabilize a person during an asthma attack. The best prescription inhaler depends on several factors such as, age, symptoms, and triggers. Over-the-counter asthma inhalers are available, but are recommended for emergency use only. A PlushCare physician will take you through a real-time video diagnosis and send your asthma prescription to the pharmacy of your choice.
