Step Therapy

There are five steps of asthma therapy. Every time you talk to your doctor, you should make a note of the level at which you are currently being treated. Then, based on your current symptoms, a decision is made whether the therapy should be continued, intensified ("STEP UP") or reduced ("STEP DOWN").

  • In the case of "STEP DOWN" you should be treated according to the next stage lower in the future.
  • In the case of "STEP UP" you should in future be treated according to the next stage higher.

If you are not symptom-free after 3-6 months of treatment according to level 5, your doctor should refer you to a specialist asthma clinic!
