Eligible participants will be 18-70 years old with a diagnosis of asthma for the past two years and be on steady doses of asthma medications. Volunteers should also have a history of asthma symptoms worsening with a cold.

Participation requires attending clinic visits, taking study medication as directed, completing a diary, and answering questionnaires.

Compensation is provided.
