Is it ok to take symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) in pregnancy?

Yes, only if needed. An asthma attack is a bad thing to have happen during a pregnancy. During asthma symptoms, a person's oxygen level drops, which means a further drop in oxygen for the baby inside. So, asthma should be controlled using medications. Pregnant women should bring all their medications to show both their primary care and ob-gyn doctors, to be sure the dosing is correct, and none are dangerous to a baby.
Unknown. Symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) is a pregnancy class c meaning animal stooges suggest possible fetal harm. One component in symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) called Budesonide (a steroid) is quite safe in pregnancy and can be given by itself.
