Buteyko Breathing specialists are not medical doctors and do not give advice regarding medication. We help our students to normalize their breathing, and as a result, they often lose most or all their primary symptoms. Decisions about medication and dosing are between students and their primary health physicians. However, often when symptoms are reduced, and standard medical diagnostics deems the asthmatic condition improving, physicians will recommend a reduction in medication. To learn more about Dr. Buteyko’s view regarding medication, read the Letter About Asthma written by him.
