Asthma can be managed efficiently by two therapies that are pharmacotherapy and non-pharmacotherapy. Pharmacotherapy includes long-term control oral and inhaled medication like bronchodilators, mast cell stabilizers, corticosteroids, β-agonists, leukotriene modifiers and immunotherapy. Non-pharmacotherapy techniques include Yogic techniques i.e., Asana (Physical exercises) and Pranayama (Breathing exercises). Quick-relief (rescue) medications includes short-acting beta agonists, ipratropium (Atrovent), Oral and intravenous corticosteroids. Maintenance of regular pulmonary function, maintenance of usual physical activity, prevention of the cough or wheezing with minimal chronic symptoms and avoiding adverse consequence of medication are the primary goals of management of asthma.
