I have asthma (or allergies).  Can I continue my regular medications while pregnant?

You need to be healthy for the baby to be healthy.  Use of inhalers such as Ventolin, Asmacort, Proventil, or Flonase will help to keep the breathing passages open.  If you are on an antihistamines Claritin, Chlor-Trimeton, Benadryl, Dimetapp, Zyrtec and Tavist are the safest antihistamines to take during pregnancy.  You can always check with your provider if you are using something not listed.
