First rule in the treatment of exercise-induced bronchospasm is to have enough knowledge about the etiological factors and to take protective measures against these factors. Protective and controlling agents are used in medical treatment and if present, effective control of underlying asthma is quite important. The majority of the drugs used in asthma and EIB treatment are existing in the WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency) prohibited drugs list.
