Your asthma action plan

3) Example of an asthma action plan

You can discuss and personalise your action plan whenever you have your asthma review with your asthma nurse or GP. It is important to attend your asthma review even though you may be feeling well and in control of your asthma.

If your asthma is well controlled you may be able to step down some of your medications but you should only do this after discussions with your  GP or asthma nurse.

If you are having difficulty controlling your asthma, using your personalised asthma action plan can really help. Make sure you note any changes to your medication or inhalers on your plan.
