Hi.. Asthalin is a not that very useful in preventing an episode of asthma..  It is more of helpful in symptomatic reduction of the spell... You may need few other medical treatment that could help in preventing an episode.. Contact your doctor for the details.. Apart from these you can also help yourself from reducing the exposure to allergen and very cold environment.. All the best..

Asthalin inhalers are given only to arrest an episode of asthma and does not have a role in prevention of the asthmatic attack.

I would suggest you to take preventive measures to prevent the attacks by means like preventing exposure to cold climate, dust, allergens and so on. There are medication too that can prevent the asthmatic episodes. You can consult your doctor for those medications.
