Pulmicort is an inhaled steroid that is used to help control inflammation and irritation in the lungs to help prevent asthma exacerbations.
Albuterol is a beta agonist medicine that helps open the airways. This is a rapid acting "rescue" medicine that is used during an asthma attack to help open the lungs back up.
Loratidine is an anti-histamine that is used to help control allergy symptoms. Allergies can sometimes trigger asthma exacerbations.
All these medicines are commonly used for asthma.
