Why you may need a rescue inhaler.

Asthma attacks can happen suddenly, and symptoms can be unpredictable. That’s why it’s important to always carry a rescue inhaler with you at all times and, if possible, keep an extra rescue inhaler in the places where you might need it:

  • In your backpack or purse
  • In the car*
  • At work or at school
  • In your gym bag
  • etc.

*Note: Cars and gym bags can sometimes get really hot or really cold, so you should always avoid extreme temperatures when storing your ProAir RespiClick® inhaler because they could affect its ability to help you when you are having trouble breathing.

A common way to get three inhalers at once (so you always have one handy) is to ask your doctor for
 a "90-day prescription.” If you are given a 90-day prescription (instead of a 30-day), you’ll get three inhalers at once. Keep one at home, one at school and one...wherever else you might need it in a pinch.

That means three ProAir RespiClick® inhalers for just one copay. Multiple inhalers. More convenience. And less cost.

Do you need a daily asthma controller, too?

If you use a rescue inhaler more than two days per week for reasons other than to help prevent EIB (exercise-induced bronchospasm), or exercise-induced asthma, it could be a sign that you may also need a long-term controller medicine that you take daily. Asthma controller medications can:

  • Help prevent asthma attacks
  • Make asthma symptoms less severe

When used correctly and consistently, asthma controllers can help you stay ahead of asthma symptoms—before they occur. Healthcare providers prescribe inhaled corticosteroids, or ICSs, for most asthma patients who need a controller. Learn more about getting and keeping asthma under control with asthma controller medications.

Remember that even if your asthma is well-controlled, you should always keep a rescue inhaler like ProAir RespiClick® with you wherever you go.
