Meaningful appointments with your doctor are critical to managing your asthma. These conditions vary significantly by individual, so talking with your healthcare professional about treatment options is important. The goal of these conversations should be to find a satisfying treatment plan, whether that means better symptom management, improved quality of life or finding a method of treatment that better fits your lifestyle. Whatever your personal need, we encourage you to talk to your doctor about your condition and your treatment options. To aid you in discussing the benefits of adding Efficas Care to your treatment plan we have prepared an
Efficas Care Physician's Reference (PDF).
As a friendly reminder, it is helpful to your doctor if you review your symptoms before you visit. For example, make sure you know how you would answer the following questions:
- What symptoms are you experiencing; how frequently and how severe?
- Have your symptoms changed recently; if so, how so?
- Do your symptoms prevent you from doing such normal activities as sleeping, working, going to school, housework, or yard work?
By answering these questions for yourself, you'll be able to assess how well your symptoms are controlled; then, when the time comes to discuss your treatment plan, you will be able to give the healthcare professional information that has been thoroughly thought out.
