Asthma Rescue Medications

The Allergy & Asthma Center provides information on rescue medications for treatment of mild to severe asthma attacks.

Types of Asthma Rescue Medications

The following are common asthma rescue medications used to treat an asthma attack.

Quick Relief or Rescue Medications: An asthma rescue medication is a short acting bronchodilator that helps provide rapid relief to relax muscles around the airways. These medications act almost immediately to relieve symptoms of asthma and usually only last 2 to 4 hours.(Albuterol Inhaler or nebulizer, Pro Air MDI, Ventolin MDI, Xopenex MDI)

Systemic (oral steroids): used to treat moderate to severe asthma episodes. They have anti-inflammatory action, which helps reduce inflammation and speed your recovery from an episode. These medications have significant side effects and must be used only when absolutely necessary. Side effects include, water retention, increased appetite, weight gain, osteoporosis and insomnia. (Prednisone, Prelone, Orapred, Medrol Dose Pack)
