Anyone had to take them while pregnant? Mine is normally under control without daily meds. But I got a cold this week, and it went to my chest. Started having asthma attacks at work today. My OB said they don't change asthma treatment at all with pregnancy since it's not something to mess around with. So I started my Flovent (steroid inhaler) to get this under control. Of course I need the albuterol for attacks. Hoping to avoid prednisone, which I often need when my asthma flairs up. I have a rare form of asthma called cough asthma. My attacks involve uncontrollable coughing. Plus of course my peak flow is low. People assume I'm very sick b/c the coughing fits are awful, but I honestly feel fine aside from the coughing / not breathing, lol. My cold symptoms are gone! Now just to kick the asthma!
i havent so far im on flixotide and salbutamol but it has been/ is summer here in nz so once we get into winter i think i will need them more. i repeated the prescription pretty early on because id heard that asthma gets worse in pregnancy but i guess its a individual thing hope yours starts behaving soon
I have an albuterol inhaler that I've been told her perfectly safe to use. I only use it when I really need to though because it makes me so jittery. I'm sorry you're not feeling well - breathing issues are no fun I only use mine for allergy related asthma (which is really bad right now)
