We know from the calls we get to our helpline that many people with asthma have concerns about taking their medicines . For some people, taking medicines every day can feel complicated. It might feel strange to be asked to take a preventer medicine every day, even when you feel well. You may be finding that getting into a routine to take an inhaler every day is tricky when life can be busy and you're juggling family, work, or feeling unwell. Or you may worry about possible side effects from taking medicines for a long-term condition.
