Asthma Control Checklist

Your asthma may not be as controlled as you think.

If you've been diagnosed with asthma, you probably know it's a lifelong condition you live with day to day. And you may think you have it under control. But you might want to think about whether you're using your rescue inhaler more often lately to get your symptoms under control. Does this sound like you?

Think back over the 6 months. Then take a look at the statements below. If you say yes to any of these your doctors need to know.

  • I had an asthma flare-up that made me want to see my doctor
  • I noticed I was using my rescue inhaler more than twice a week
  • I have been having asthma symptoms — like wheezing — more often even though I already take a daily asthma medicine
  • I had sudden asthma symptoms and I had to get emergency treatment at the hospital
  • I had to take an oral steroid medicine for my asthma
  • I have been waking up at night more often to use my rescue inhaler
