In the prevention of attacks, it can take the following measures:

1, desensitization.

2, cromolyn sodium: a stable mast cell membrane, preventing their degranulation and release of media; lower respiratory tract peripheral receptors of excitatory role of good effect of exogenous asthma, reduce the number of incidence.

3, ketotifen: also inhibit mast cell, basophil, reducing the release of histamine and slow-reactive substances to reduce airway hyperresponsiveness role. This drug for prevention of asthma attacks also have good results.

4, at present, most experts recommend frequent recurrence of asthma patients in the long-term inhaled corticosteroids in the prevention of attacks are even better the effect, use the method can be aerosol or dry powder inhalation, a daily dose of 400 ~ 800mg, side effects are not Great.
