Medicamentos de control

Medicamentos de control

Muchas personas que padecen asma necesitan tomar medicamentos a diario para controlar su afección y evitar la aparición de síntomas. Estos medicamentos se denominan "medicamentos de control" (también, "medicamentos de mantenimiento o prevención"). La mayoría de ellos reducen la inflamación de las vías aéreas; otros relajan las vías aéreas y las ensanchan. Los medicamentos de control son de acción lenta, es decir que pueden tardar días o semanas en comenzar a surtir efecto. No brindan un alivio inmediato de los síntomas y no se deben utilizar cuando se necesita un efecto rápido. En estos casos, se requieren medicamentos de acción más rápida (conocidos como "medicamentos de alivio rápido") que actúen sin demora.
