Allergy meds might help you treat the underlying allergic reaction if that is causing the majority of the problem.  Watch out for food allergies and intolerances - these actually caused 90% of my symptoms (I was to the point of being on advair 500 3 puffs twice a day - over the recommended daily dose, plus ventolin and atrovent 3-4 times a day and singulair).

It was all due to a dairy and wheat allergy.  Now I'm on no medications and only have mild symptoms (still have a ventolin inhaler I use during colds and bad outdoor mould or exposure to my food allergens).

GERD and other stomach problems can also increase asthmatic symptoms and many of the asthma increase reflux and GERD (go figure!)

Try to limit all allergen exposure - dust, mould, animals etc until you can determine a specific cause.  Good luck and hope you feel better.
