Yes definatly ,beta 2 receptor agonists of Short acting,ultra short acting ,long acting are freely available in market also anticholinergics are also available, if u can't take steroid bcuz of allergy or any other contraindications, u can take those but only after physician's consultation, never try to self medicate
