Asthma Medications Poster

These posters are designed to assist school health office staff, pharmacists, asthma educators and primary care clinics in prompting patients to identify their inhaled asthma medications. The posters display a photo of each inhaler; the generic and brand name of the medication; the delivery dose; and manufacturers’ name for all currently available inhaled asthma medications commonly prescribed in the US.

Posters are available for print distribution below. All information presented on the posters is available in the interactive panels.
