What Athma medication is sage
Dear Doc

I am 7 weeks pregnant and a mild asthmatic. My asthma is controlled and doesn't require steriods, only salbutamol when an acute attack occurs. Is this safe for my baby?

I also take Flexinase for sinusitis and allergies, a friend told me I should only be using saline nasal sprays. Is this true?

Kind Regards

Salbutamol is safe. Flexinase is fine as very little will be absorbed through inhalation.
