What should be done during an asthma attack?

Always follow instructions of your allergist (doctor) on what precise steps you should take at the time of your asthma attack. In general, it is important to stay calm and take your prescribed medications. Bronchodilators are the most commonly prescribed drugs to treat asthma attack symptoms. These medications relax the muscles surrounding the lung airways, resulting in dilation of the bronchial tubes. Bronchodilators may be inhaled, taken orally or injected.
