It is safe: You absolutely can safely get a prescription for birth control and asthma medication. Asthma is a chronic disease so it is not really safe to have it treated in an urgent care. See a primary care provider who can make sure your asthma is under good control and can make sure that you are tolerating your birth control well too.
