Generally No: We think that current asthma medications are safe for the baby. You need to check with your doctor for advice specific to the medication. But remember, asthma is not a healthy state for your body. In a severe attack your body may not get enough oxygen and build up unhealthy toxins. These conditions may seriously hurt the baby. The medicines ar the much safer option!

Doctor can evaluate: For new onset of asthma symptoms in an adult, he can see and follow-up with his primary care doctor. If symptoms are difficult to get rid of, or are unusual, the patient can see an allergy & asthma specialist, and/or see a pulmonologist (lung doctor). Pulmonary function tests and allergy tests can be helpful when looking for the best treatments. For bad symptoms, the E.R. Is the place to go to.

Can spiriva be prescribed for exercise induced asthma?

Dr. Brian Bezack

No: A the present time spiriva is only indicated for use in patients with copd. Based on how the medication works and what causes exercise-induced asthma, it is not likely that spiriva would give any significant relief to those symptoms.
