Should be ok: You will definitely want to continue asthma medications until your physician advises you otherwise. Your asthma medications should not interfere with the efficacy of your immunotherapy.

Yes, usually: Are you taking oral immunotherapy or shots? It is usually okay to continue your allergy/asthma meds, unless you are having a severe attack. Your doctor who is treating you is the best person to tell you whether it is safe or not.
