Yes.... Asthma management has two components 1.rescuer therapy- is advised when you are suffering from acute asthmatic attack. 2.preventer therapy- is prescribed to reduce the frequency and severity of these attacks. So ideally if your are a known asthmatic (PFT and allergy test positive) It's better to start with inhaled steroid on daily basis.
