    This question is for my daughter. She hasn't been on asthma medication for two years due to good health. With her recent news of pregnancy her asthma has become troublesome.

    My question: Is there any asthma medications that are lactose/whey/casein free and a category A or B during pregnancy?

    Hi and welcome to the community, It is not unusual for the hormonal changes of pregnancy to trigger asthma issues. In general, asthma medocations are safe during pregnancy. The benefits to the baby from having his/her mommy breathing well out way other risks.Check into the Hfa versions of medications. They should not have the ingrdients you listed. I know Dulera doesn't. Other options include Symbicort and Advair Hfa. Take care and God bless. Sonya
