UK Study Recommends LTRA Pills for Asthma
A recent study has asserted that consuming a pill is equally as good as asthma inhaler as part of asthma management. As per the team of UK researchers, asthmatic patients who are under the medication of Leukotriene Receptor Antagonist (LTRA) pills are more likely to continue with the same in comparison to those who are addicted to asthma inhalers.
However, researchers are of the view that LTRA tablets can be used as a replacement to asthma inhalers, only by those who are either struggling to use it or have aversion to steroids
Surprisingly, LTRA tablet has been in market for quite a long time, but it’s being recommended by health watch dogs only as third or fourth resort under asthma medication.
Responding to the new development, Prof. David Price from the University of Aberdeen and the University of East Anglia, who led the study, claimed, “We hope these findings will increase the options for healthcare professionals when prescribing for this common but disruptive disease”.
With this news hitting the corners of the medical fraternity, medical experts have generated a consensus that before shifting to LTRA tablets, patients must consult their GP’s so that potential harm pertaining to sudden shift of asthma medication can be averted.
