Asthma Attack!

Can You Control Your Asthma?

Asthma attacks can happen when you are around "asthma triggers." Asthma triggers are things that cause asthma symptoms or attacks. Your triggers can be very different from other people with asthma. Know your triggers and learn how to avoid them.

Watch out for an attack when you can't avoid your triggers and make sure you always have a full prescription. Remember to refill your prescription every month!

Grab a full prescription and battle some common triggers in 8 levels. Can you beat them all?

It's easy with medication!

Each level has an asthma trigger for you to battle. Your job is to use your inhaler to hit the triggers that pop up. Get as many hits as you can before time runs out.

Each level has a score you need to get to get a star. Get a star for each level and you win the whole game! Share it with your friends to see if they can beat your score.

Take a deep breath... and go get 'em!
