Stubborn asthma may indicate poor use of medicationsFindings of a new study have indicated that patients afflicted with difficult-to-control asthma are often not taking their anti-asthma medication as prescribed by their doctor.

Dr. Liam G. Heaney at Queen’s University of Belfast, Northern Ireland, and colleagues found that about 5 percent of adults with asthma remain difficult to control, with persistent symptoms and frequent flare-ups even with they were prescribed high doses of steroids.

Heaney and colleagues concluded that asthma could probably improve substantially if patients emphasize upon regular preventative therapy (as prescribed).
