Oral corticosteroids (OCS) are frequently used as relievers for acute asthma and controllers for severe asthma. However, the relief offered by OCS is counterbalanced by adverse effects.

Objective: The objective of this study was to describe how patients perceive OCS treatment benefits and risks, and how this could affect their adherence to the treatment.
