Up in the Air: There are not sufficient data one way or the other to say specifically that advair won't harm your baby. As a general rule, inhaled medications are somewhat safer than pills or liquids because the levels in the blood are not as high for inhaled medications. Your doctor can help determine if your lung disease severity outweighs the potential risk to your baby.
