During the panic and agitation of an asthma attack it is easy to make mistakes: • Taking tranquilizers or sedatives. Drugs such as Valium should never be taken to control the anxiety associated with shortness of breath during an attack. These drugs depress breathing. • Taking the wrong medicine during an attack. Remember, it is only the short-acting beta2-bronchodilators that produce immediate relaxation of your airways. Know which of your asthma medicines are your reliever medications, carry them with you, and know the dose your doctor wants you to take during an attack. On their own, the preventer inhalers and oral drugs will not help an attack. Always follow your personalized asthma action plan. Seek emergency treatment when you are instructed to do so by your personalized plan. • Overmedication. Taking more than the prescribed dose of a reliever medication will not help relieve the attack. The side effects will only be made worse. Follow the emergency plan worked out with your doct
