astma and pregnancy

Hi everyone... I was just wondering if anyone knows about asthma treatment during pregnancy. I am a 24 yr old who is looking to get pregnant and have come off my advair and singlair but am now taking my albuterol MDI several times a day. I don't know if there is something other than the advair that I can take or If I should just go back on it. Thanks

Hi there, Irish!

I'm sure there are drugs that you can safely take for your asthma while you are pregnant. The best course of action would be to consult with your doctor if that is what you are the route you are most comfortabe with.

Alternatively, a non-toxic salt pipe can be used in conjunction with, or as an adjuvant to allopathic medicine or exclusive of any medication as well. The device can be safely used by:

children
pregnant women
diabetics
hypertensive patients
high blood pressure patients

You can research this halotherapy technique more directly at:

Best Wishes & Congrats on Your Path to Motherhood! :-)

Ive had asthma since I was in the 4th grade I am now 27 and have 3 kids.  I absolutly can not go with out an inhaler.  My kids are perfect.  I don't like advare but flovent and aberterol is what I have been on for years.  I would not stop taking any of the medicines that you are taking currently without your docters permission.  That could be dangerous.  I would ask about the flovent everyone is different and there are differnt types of treatment.  I have a nebulizer that I also used durning pegnacy I had to mix my aberterol with a solvent.  There are so many different options to treating asthma that are safe to use durning pregnacy.
