Yes....: Those inhalers are safe to take during pregnancy. It is much more dangerous for the developing fetus to have low oxygen, which can happen if the pregnant person is having bronchospasm! If you do get pregnant, be sure to tell your OB doctor about these medications so their use and your breathing can be monitored closely.
