My younger sis just found out some great news - she's pregnant! In a frenzy, she forgot to ask about her asthma. I've started asking in forums and researching online. Everyone has been super helpful, and turns out most meds should be fine, according to this: http://bit.ly/XjviN

HI and welcome to the community.

Asthma meds are safe. Most asthma meds are topical so very little if any of the medicaion enters the system.

One perspective is to consider the consequences of not taking asthma meds - asthma flare, low O2 levels, risk of infection... My reading has said that not taking asthma meds is more risky than taking them.

I hope that helps you.
