The number of prescriptions prescribed in England and dispensed in the community for drugs that are indicated for the treatment of asthma are shown in the attached table. Information is not available by age. These drugs may also be prescribed for conditions other than asthma.

The sum of the data for all National Health Service England Regions does not equal the total England figure, because the total England figure includes unidentified doctors and it is not possible for NHS Business Services Authority Prescription Services to allocate to an NHS England region.
