Bentalan and Pregnancy???

I suffer from asthma and during the allergy months, asthma is a complication...I take Zirtec...when it gets bad I take inhalers(Ventolin)...if that doesn't work then cortisone(Bentalan).....now I'm pregnant and my Doc. said I can take it but I've read that it's not good for the fetus...is there an alternative??

Hi,
I also suffer from asthma.  I find magnesium works very well for me, nettle tea, and quercetin.
Magnesium is a smooth muscle relaxer (both lung and uterine muscles are muscles) . It's given to women in preterm labor in high doses.  I used to have attack every few weeks, and I haven't had one in about 5 months but, we're all different.   I avoid allergens when I can (for me dust, animals, pollen, grass); my bedding is dust free etc.  I take other anti-inflammatory supplements too including fish oil.   If it flares up, I use air purifiers.
Of course, you should check with your doctor, but if possible I would get a second opinion from someone who takes your concern seriously and is willing to research other options.
Good luck!
