What causes Asthma?

The specific cause of asthma remains largely unknown, it is thought genetics is one contributing factor. Some adults are diagnosed with asthma as children and carry it throughout their lives, however others can develop asthma over time and be diagnosed as adults.

How is Asthma treated?

Asthma is largely treated with inhalers, categorised into two treatments either a “preventer” or a “reliever”, in some cases multiple are required to ensure optimal asthma management is achieved. It’s important you maintain an Asthma action plan, and check in with your medical team regularly.

How do they work?

Relievers are used to relax the muscles in the airways that become contracted and tight and cause the airway to become narrow, which reduces the ability to breathe effectively. Preventers are used to reduce the inflammation and swelling within the airways, ultimately allowing for more effective breathing to take place.

Am I guaranteed a prescrption?

Our doctors provide the highest standard of healthcare, which means that each patient is assessed on an individual basis. If our doctor determines that it is not safe for you to be prescribed the pill, or believes that you should visit another GP in person to be further assessed, you will not be issued a prescription and they will provide you with some recommendations on next steps. If this occurs, your consultation fee will be fully refunded.

How long until a doctor responds?

A doctor will review your assessment and respond within 24 hours. In most cases it will be much sooner than this.

Can I cancel at any time?

Yes, you can cancel at any time! However given there’s no ongoing or annual fees, it’s best to delay and repeats if you don’t yet require them so you can use them later on!

How fast will it be delivered and how is it packaged?

Once your pill has been paid for, we will ship with free express delivery to anywhere in Australia, meaning your package should arrive within 1-3 days. Your product is shipped in an Australia Post package, which means it will be completely discreet.
