Myth about Allergies
Inhaled medications containing steroids are dangerous
Inhaled mediations, including corticosteriods, have been studied extensively for over 50 years and are a proven safe and effective means to treat asthma. It actually may be more dangerous to stop medications without discussing alternative options with your physician. With the regular use of the office spirometer and newer tests such as exhaled nitric oxide, we can tailor medication regimens to provide the lowest dose while maintaining normal pulmonary functions.
