Remembering Asthma Medications

What strategies do you use to remember to take your asthma medications?

  1. I use the Health app on my iPhone to track my medication. and set it at times. Also for my rescue inhaler, I use daily tasks on Google Calendar to remind me to have my albuterol with me when I go anywhere. i use what tech I am used to, and it helps me remember.

    1. I just got diagnosed yesterday so I’m still learning what my triggers are for attacks, but I consider my albuterol my backup weapon if I can’t breathe. So I always make sure to have it on hand! I’m pretty compliant with medication I have adhd so having phone reminders really helps me with that!

    2. We are glad to have you as a member of the community as you are newly diagnosed. I'm linking an article that you may find helpful that reviews common triggers and how to control or avoid them. https://asthma.net/triggers Let us know what you thinks! -Lauren (team member)

  2. Health app on my phone

    1. Hi Elizabeth, thanks for sharing! Do you have your medications listed in the health app? -Lauren (team member)
