Why do I get a stomach ache while using asthma medication?

Depends on the med: A person can get stomache aches from various medicines, not just asthma meds.

Prednisone can be strong on the stomach lining and cause tummy aches, so a person taking Prednisone for asthma can have stomach symptoms. Also, tummy aches can occur just "coincidentally" with taking medications. ...Read more

Acetaminophen?: I think this is what you are referring to. This is the generic name for Tylenol and should have no problems with your asthma.

This will subside with rest and getting your cough under better control. See an Allergist for management. ...Read more
