Learn about Your Asthma and Allergy Medications


The American Academy of Allergy Asthma and Immunology (AAAAI) website has a section devoted exclusively to patients and consumers.  You'll find all kinds of information there for parents, children, senior citizens, and school nurses, etc. 

Tips to Remember . . .

A highlight of this website is online access to the AAAAI's patient education brochures from their "Tips to Remember" patient brochure series.  (Spanish tips brochures are also available.)

Get the most out of your asthma and allergy medications.  Learn more about them in these two brochures available for download:  Tips to Remember:  Asthma and allergy medications and Tips to Remember: Inhaled Asthma Medications.

For quick, basic information about all kinds of medications used to treat allergic reactions (including those used for the eyes, nose, skin, lungs, etc.) check out AAAAI's:  Allergy and Asthma Drug Guide.
