Can pregnant women 20weeks take becotide (corticosteroid) inhaler for allergy?

Can pregnant women 20weeks take becotide (corticosteroid) inhaler for allergy?

Probably: Although there has been no proof that inhaled steroid is harmful for the fetus, budesonide is the only one considered category B for pregnancy. At 20 weeks, most if not all of the fetus' organs are fully formed and thus it is doubtful that much can affect its development. Regardless, losing asthma control poses a much higher risk for both the mother and the baby. Ask for budesonide if worried. ...Read more

Can I take an allergy pill before a lung function test I know I can't use inhalers but I hope I can take the pill mine are severe.

Yes: If it is the pft they are doing, anti allergy is ok, as the airways will still respond as long as you avoid any inhaler with bronchodilator in it. What is tested in the pft for asthma is the airway reaction, although asthma is a chronic inflammatory process, the antihistamine should not interfere with the airway test, although, potentially it could in a provocation test. ...Read more

Took 1 25 mg benedryl for allergy relief. Struggling with wheezing so took 1 puff Proair inhaler. Do I need to worry about interactions?

Allergy: You may be having an airway inflammation reactive to an allergen. There is no problem with benadryl (diphenhydramine) and proair. I am more concerned about you being pregnant and experiencing restrictive airway. If this persists, please consult your doctor. You may need more aggressive bronchodilator / inhaler treatment. ...Read more

If I start taking allergy shots, can I stop using an inhaler before running? * The inhaler (with albuterol) is only used during high pollen seasons.

If I start taking allergy shots, can I stop using an inhaler before running? * The inhaler (with albuterol) is only used during high pollen seasons.

Possible: Since only 80% of the people respond to allergy shots, you may be able to avoid using albuterol before exercise if you are in the 80% group. However the probability is likely under 10%. Try exercising without using the albuterol and see what happens. Do realize that allergy shots usually take several months to provide benefit and controlling your nasal symptoms may improve asthma as well. ...Read more

Suddenly, at 37, I have allergy induced asthma. I was prescribed ProAir. I take Toprol 50mgs for HBP & SVT. I'm afraid to use the inhaler. Any advice?

Ideas: Have you gained any weight over the last several months? Since you have hypertension and SVT, it does make me wonder about sleep apnea being significant. In any event, if you are overweight, it would make me wonder about gastroesophageal reflux which could present as cough or asthma. It is felt that as many as 50% of cases of adult-onset asthma are tied to reflux. ...Read more

Non specific: Asthma and allergy medicines would help control your symptoms, but if you are sure allergic to dust mites, you first need to avoid exposure as much as you can by using environmental control measures, and if still symptomatic, ask an experienced allergist whether you are a candidate for specific immunotherapy against dust mites, goodluck ...Read more

Is it safe to take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) with cymbacort, I have COPD and mild asthma but am having some allergy symptoms right now? I also use rescue inhaler

Yes, but: Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is an excellent antihistamine and works very well. However, the side effects (sedation, visual disturbances, dizziness when standing up to fast can be problematic). There are other antihistamines that have fewer side effects like Claritin which are more likely to not affect other medications you may be using. ...Read more

My daughter has yellow gook in her eyes and they are also watery. She does have allergies which she takes Flonase and an inhaler for! Is the yellow discharge caused by allergies as welll? And if so what can I give her?

Antihistamine: Although discharge from allergies is usually clear/watery, there can be some yellow/thicker appearance to it. Both eyes is more suggestive of allergy than infection. Consider over the counter antihistamine like zyrtec or Claritin (loratadine) for children. If it worsens, or the lids are matted together then an antibiotic drop may be needed. If the allergies cont. To bother, antihistamine drops can be rx'd. ...Read more
