Yay!!! I am so glad he is going so much better!!! Is it a rescue inhaler or a daily medication? Danny has both and they are both used twice daily.... :/ They are pretty much out of options for him because he is maxed out on everything...if it keeps him breathing, we keep doing it. :/

There are daily, preventative medications that work to reduce inflammation and such... Then there are rescue inhalers that are used to relieve asthma attacks. A daily medication won't stop an asthma attack but a rescue inhaler (usually albuterol or pulmicort) works for that purpose.
