Safer than not breat: Check out http://www.drugs.com/pregnancy/methylprednisolone.html. Methylprednisolone has not been given formal pregnancy rating by FDA. However, it's probably safer than not breathing if you have asthma attack. Presumably prescribing doc was aware that you're pregnant but this is best addressed at time of prescription, not after. If in doubt, ask dispensing pharmacist too.
