ABSTRACT
The author reflects on a study, published in an issue of the "American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine," which focuses on the effectiveness of adding once-daily oral controller therapy to low-dose theophylline or montelukast in patients with poorly controlled asthma while taking medication. He views that the study reinforces current guidelines showing little role for montelukast or theophylline to existing treatment regimens in patients with poorly controlled asthma.
