|I Am Asthmatic
Discuss the following with your physician: your current treatment and how to adjust your medications if your asthma deteriorates gradually or suddenly.
The document that explains how to adjust the treatment is called an "action plan". Generally, medication is increased one or two levels, depending on the current stage of asthma and the degree of aggravation.
An action plan is always established by the attending physician, who must ensure that the patient understands all elements of the plan.
