Asthma Medications Used During Pregnancy
The majority of medications used to control your asthma
are thought to be generally safe for both mother and fetus during pregnancy. Some medications, such as bronchodilators and theophylline
, may weaken your contractions
close to the time of delivery. Certain types of medications used to terminate pregnancy, induce labor, or control bleeding of the uterus should be avoided. To ensure that you are not exposed to these medications, inform your physician that you have asthma.
