Asthma Rescue Medications:

 

Rescue medications start working right away and the effects are generally shorter-lasting than control or prevention medications. They are generally used in case of an acute asthma attack to quickly relieve symptoms such as shortness of breath, chest tightness, coughing, and wheezing. Read more about the rescue medications; short-acting beta2-agonists and anticholinergics.
