You seem to have bronchial asthma.One of the causes of bronchial asthma is genetic predisposition like a positive family history.Bronchodilators like asthalin leads to rapid relief in wheezing with minimum side effects.Inhaled corticosteroids also decreases inflammation in airways and also eosinophilia.As tablets are having more side effects and better in efficacy inhaled medications are first choice in treatment of bronchial asthma.You always have another option of treatment to change from asthalin to long acting inhalers after consulting your doctor
