HELLO THERE.

THANKS FOR WRITING.

ALDOMET FOR BLOOD PRESSURE IS SAFE IN PREGNANCY. IT IS THE MOST COMMON AND SAFE ANTIHYPERTENSIVE USED IN PREGNANCY

BUTALIN INHALER IS CATEGORY C DRUG WHICH MEANS IT HAS TO BE USED ONLY WHEN BENEFITS TO YOU OUTWEIGH THE RISK INVOLVED IN THE BABY. IT HAS SHOWN SIDE EFFECTS WHEN USED IN ANIMALS BUT DEFINITE STUDIES ON HUMANS HAVE NOT BEEN DONE.

SO YOU MAY CONTINUE USING THE INHALER PROVIDED IT IS RELIEVING YOUR COUGH.

TAKE CARE
