I have little dust allergy . On wheezing , I always take Seroflo and I feel better with the first single dose.

hi, what the doctor prescribed is correct,recent studies suggest no harm to baby on using inhaler steroids,u can safely use them.oral thrush and sore throat has been implicated to the patient but by rinsing mouth with water after using medicine can safely avoid above problems.asthma is better controlled by keepng environment clean and use of inhaler sterods as when required.wish you a good health.

Thanks for your query
Look these asthma medications you are using now dont have much side effects to affect your fetus neither they have effects to affect your pregnancy. So you can use them with full assurance during your pregnancy. Because what you need in your pregnancy is a controlled asthma. Asthma control is very much important. Because effect of uncontrolled asthma has more deleterious effects on your fetus and pregnancy outcome than the effects of drugs. So achieve optimum control of your asthma by using these medications even in the high doses without having deleterious effects on your fetus. Consult a pulmonologist and take his opinion.
Thank you.
