BACKGROUND β-Antagonists have recently been proposed for the treatment of chronic asthma; however, concerns regarding risk of acute bronchoconstriction in clinical trials remain. OBJECTIVE To determine the frequency of oral β-blocker prescribing in patients with asthma and associations with severe asthma exacerbations requiring oral steroids in patients with active asthma defined by prior asthma-related medication use. METHODS Patients with asthma registered on 31 March 2007 and all asthma… CONTINUE READING
