Brittle asthma: Types, symptoms, and treatment

Medications

Medications play a major part in a treatment plan for brittle asthma. However, most treatment approaches are not specific to brittle asthma. Instead, doctors use them to treat all forms of severe and uncontrolled asthma.

Medications to treat brittle asthma may include:

Steroids . Although steroids are not always effective for people with brittle asthma, high doses may help. In addition to higher doses of inhaled steroids, people might also use oral steroids, such as prednisone. Anticholinergic agents . These drugs relax the muscles of the airway to help control asthma and reduce severe symptoms. Spiriva (tiotropium) is an example of a long-acting maintenance anticholinergic medication. Leukotriene antagonists . Leukotrienes are chemicals released by cells and tissues in the immune system. They play a role in inflammation, allergy, and asthma symptoms. Leukotriene antagonists decrease the action of leukotrienes
