Im 6 weeks pregnant and have a terrible cold. I was having a hard time breathing 2 nights ago and decided to try my daughters albuterol inhaler. I used 5 puffs over a 24 hour period. I dont know why but I assumed it was harmless to use while pregnant. Now im looking online and see its a class C! Im nervous I may have done harm to baby. Anyone else use albuterol while pregnant first trimester?
Call your doctor,if its not something you have used before you need to check with them. I have one and had to use it with my first two and it was ok but like i said if its not something you usually use you need to call.
It's safe but call ur doc if I'll keep needing it.
In my first trimester I needed my puffer a lot more than usual but it settled down at about 12 weeks
And the dose isn't very big. U can take 2 puffs 4 hourly.
