Asthma Medication Containing Ciclesonide?
Hello, good morning..
Thank you for the question.
Asthma occurs due to inflammation of the lower airway so that the airway narrows and excessive mucus is produced. This condition can cause shortness of breath, wheezing, and coughs that recur, thus reducing the productivity of sufferers.
Asthma treatment can be done in various ways, depending on the severity, recurrence, originator, and the patient's own health condition. In general, asthma treatment is divided into 2, namely medication to control to prevent asthma attacks (controller) and to relieve asthma attacks that arise (reliever).
The medications you mentioned include corticosteroids, which are anti-inflammatory drugs, so they can also reduce inflammation in the airways. Not only asthma, this drug can also be given to sufferers of allergic rhinitis, perennial rhinitis, and several other diseases. By taking this drug, various symptoms, such as tightness, cough, runny nose, nasal congestion, itchy nose and eyes, sneezing, itchy and watery eyes, and so on can improve.
Unfortunately, this drug does not belong to a class of over-the-counter medicines. On the basis of these considerations, and for ethical reasons, it is not appropriate if we recommend certain brands of drugs in free forums like this. More precisely if you are an asthma sufferer, before using any medicine, first consult yourself to a doctor, lung doctor, or doctor of internal medicine.
I hope this helps.
