please miss yvette,help me..
Also I forgot to mention ...there are all kinds of asthma medicine and none of them are Category "A". This means no issue completlely safe to take during pregnancy. However, I am asthmatic and take medicine daily. In general all asthma meds fall into category B and C. I was told over and over that my asthma medicine was safe to take during pregnancy. I never had any issues. However, today and that is why I am searching for an answer, my PCP's office didn't want to write a script for my asthma meds, he want the OB doctor to write them.
Do you take these on a daily basis. Medrol is hardcore. What does your doctor say about medrol during pregnancy. I assume you mean albuterol in the nebulizer. I've taken that during pregnancy...but that's when my asthma's been out of control. Sound like the meds you are taking are "short-term". Those aren't anything you would take on a regular basis for controlling asthma. In any event...I've taking both prednisone and albuterol for nebulizer in the past and it was fine. Howeve,r those were during serous asthma attacks not for daily maintenance. Are you taking other meds for asthma on a daily basis?
