Inhaled corticosteroids are the most effective long-term controller of asthma. The recommended low doses of steroids are cornerstone of asthma treatment. Though very less, inhaled corticosteroids have minimal side effects. However, not taking the inhaled corticosteroids can have worse effects such as asthma attacks. Although, asthma can be treated with steroid tablets as well; however, they can give rise to even more health worsening side effects. Inhaled corticosteroids are often considered safe for children and adults in low doses and hence one must follow the doctor's advice to avoid any worst health conditions. The milder side effects can easily be prevented by following the preventive measure like gargling post the usage of inhaled corticosteroids.
