Asthma is a long-term, chronic disease affecting around 1 in 10 Australians. The condition occurs in people of all ages, and causes wheezing, shortness of breath and difficulty breathing. In severe cases, asthma can be life threatening, so it’s vital that the condition is actively managed.

An asthma flare-up can either develop slowly, (over hours, days or weeks), or very quickly (in a matter of minutes). Actively managing your asthma is the best way to prevent an asthma attack. In conjunction with the Asthma Council of Australia, our experienced pharmacists can help you develop an asthma action plan to keep your condition in check. We can also provide you with a review of your inhaler technique as well as offering a wide range of asthma support devices.
