Introduction: Asthma is a chronic disease of the respiratory system, with a high prevalence in our province, for its control, Imefasma syrup is a good therapeutic alternative, and it is prepared from natural drug of apiculture and herbal medicine with bronchodilator properties. For this reason we decided to realize this research to evaluate the effectiveness of this syrup for the treatment of bronchial asthma in patients of Armando Garcia`s health care area of Santiago de Cuba in 2014. Method: An uncontrolled and therapeutic intervention study was performed with Imefasma syrup in 120 asthmatic patients of Armando Garcia`s health care area of Santiago de Cuba during the year 2014. The patients were included in the study taking in consideration the diagnostic stratification of six health sectors of the area. To evaluate the effectiveness were considered clinical and functional variables of response by spirometry. It was also considered control variables such as age, sex, and irritating or toxic gas exposition. All patients gave their consent to participate in the research. Results: The use of Imefasma syrup reduced the clinical manifestations concerning symptoms and number of crisis. There was an increase of the functional capacity in terms of vital capacity, ventilatory frequency and forced expiratory flow. These clinical and functional benefits were in proportion to the period of time the syrup was used. Conclusions: Imefasma syrup was effective in asthmatic patients who were studied.
