The faster one:

Inhalation therapy delivers medication right to the lungs where your airways are inflamed during an asthma attack. By using a specific type of inhaler that delivers a powder in a fine mist directly into your lungs, you can deliver medication more quickly. In the case of devices like metered-dose inhalers (MDI) that use propellants to quickly deliver medication, patients literally feel relief within seconds of taking each breath. Oral therapy , on the other hand, takes longer because it first has to reach the stomach and then be absorbed into the bloodstream.
