National Asthma Awareness week runs from 1st – 7th September.

During this week it is an ideal time to speak with your LiveLife pharmacist and assess your current medications or if you suspect you may have asthma.

It’s important that your asthma is well managed so that you can live your life to the full and do all the activities you want to. The aim of asthma management is to achieve best control.

Having ‘severe’ asthma means that it is difficult to treat, but doesn’t mean that you can’t take control, with the right medications, lifestyle and support. Someone with ‘severe’ asthma can live as well as someone with mild asthma – it’s all in the level of control.
