Inhaled corticosteroids can treat symptoms of asthmaAsthmatic children and adults can exercise a better control over asthma and breathe deeper, as per a new review of recently concluded studies comparing inhaled corticosteroids and the medicine cromolyn.

James Guevara, M.D., of the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and colleagues were of the view that patients suffering from asthma and treated with steroids enjoy an advantage of scoring higher in lung function tests. It was remarked that the use of inhaled corticosteroids help asthmatic patients to make lesser use of inhalers than patients who makes use of cromolyn.

Guevara and colleagues further remarked that inhaled corticosteroids are any day better than cromolyn irrespective of the severity level of asthma and said that the obtained results are so decisive that there is need to warrant any further studies on this matter.
