Thanks for posting your query.
As your wife has past history of asthma
, there is high chances of persisting asthma.
Foracort 200 is meant for the same purpose.
Still you should consult with internal medicine specialist/ chest physician and should go for thorough check up.
Inhalational therapy (by foracort ) has been defined the best therapy.
By this route, medicine directly reach up to the lungs and whole body is prevented from the side effects of the medicines.
Medicines available in inhaler is in microgram while medicine taken orally is in miligram, so by this route body is exposed to less dosage.
Asthma is an allergic disease and if it is occurring in adult age then chances of permanent cure is least likely.
It can be controlled but can't be eradicated.
If body needs use of inhaler for getting relief then it can;t be labeled as habit.
