I was diagnosed with acute bronchial asthma, and was treated at the District Hospital. At this time it has been permitted to go home and outpatient. At home I was given oral medicine and berotec inhalers. Is this berotec inhaler in the reliever or controller category? thank you

Hello Wardoyo,

Thank you for the question.

Asthma (asthma bronkhiale) is a condition in which the lower airway becomes inflamed so that it narrows in diameter and increases mucus production. When experiencing a recurrence of an attack (acute exacerbation), asthmatics can experience breathing, wheezing, and coughing which are very annoying. Therefore, this condition needs to be treated with oxygen therapy and administration of several types of drugs called relievers. After the attack subsides, asthma sufferers need to be given further treatment, which is called a drug controller (controlling the symptoms, and preventing relapse of the attack).

The drug you mentioned has the active composition of Phenoterol hydrobromide. This drug belongs to the adrenergic beta 2 receptor bronchhodilator agonist group, which can widen the diameter of the airway which is narrowed due to asthma. Onset (the speed with which the effect arises), this drug is very fast, so it is good to be used to relieve symptoms when an asthma attack recurs (reliever). However, considering that this drug does not belong to the class of over-the-counter drugs, we are not authorized to explain the detailed procedures for consumption in free forums like this. It is better, so that your asthma is handled more optimally, consult directly with your doctor, pulmonary doctor, or internist who treats you.

I hope this helps.
