Inhalers are the main treatment for asthma. There are many different types of inhaler, which can be confusing. This leaflet gives information on the medicines inside inhalers, and the types of inhaler device, and some general information about inhalers. This leaflet is about inhalers for asthma.
Some of the most popular metered asthma and COPD inhalers are pictured on white, including Spiriva, Advair, Combivent, Breo, and Symbicort. Two asthma inhalers with a white background lying next to each other.
The Asthma & COPD Medications chart is a useful education resource for health professionals to help with identification and explanation of different treatments. As well as including all the latest inhalers available in Australia, the updated version specifies the PBS reimbursement status of each medication as at November 2020.
