Asthma guidelines

The 2016 British Thoracic Society asthma guideline states that 'inhaled corticosteroids are the most effective preventer drug for adults and older children for achieving overall treatment goals.'

Treatments such as Symbicort® Turbohaler® can be used when an inhaled LABA is required in addition to existing low-dose ICS use.
