Yes: It is very important to keep your asthma well-controlled during pregnancy. You should take your prescribed inhalers as recommended.

Combivent (albuterol and ipratropium): Pregnancy class c so the benefits have to outweigh the risks. Speaking with your ob/gyn and lung specialist would be the best way to determine if this is the safest medication for you.
