A systemic corticosteroid is used to reduce the inflammation.  Most often an oral or intravenous steroid is ordered for an acute asthma attack because of the quick onset in reducing the inflammation, but it can have serious side effects when used long term. Therefore, the patient is prescribed an inhaled corticosteroid known as the controller medication before discharge, which has fewer side effects.
