Did you know that an adequate nutrition can really make the difference in your asthma management?
True. You need to keep your asthma under control. Therefore, don’t stop to take your medicines exactly as prescribed unless your doctor recommends it.
What are the risks of not taking my asthma medication?
You may have uncontrolled asthma attacks which can prevent your baby from getting enough oxygen and nutrients. However, if well-controlled, it should not be a problem for both of you.
Inhaled medications are generally recommended during pregnancy because only limited amounts of the drug enter the bloodstream. Time-tested older medications are preferred too since there’s a lot more experience with their use during pregnancy.
