  • you should consult your doctor/ob before taking any advice from this site. As a CMA, the best advice I can give you is it's safer to take the albuterol to help with breathing, than to not take it and have the fetus suffer from shortage of oxygen.

  • I am not a nurse but the pharmacy should be able to answer that for you.

  • Call your OB and ask. I am a RN but would not answer such a question from someone I do not have a professional relationship with and NOT knowing your medical history. The liability can be huge. I'm sorry.

  • Well, my ob's office is closed and I didn't realize that the pharmacy closed early so I wasn't able to get my inhaler. My daughter has liquid albuterol suspension. I just want to know if there is a difference between the inhaler and the suspension. I have had athsma since I was 19 I am now 24. I have no other medical issue. I am pregnant. I will call a pharmacy and hope they will answer. Everyone around my area doesn't want to answer my question. That's why I asked on here. Sorry to respond this way. I just don't feel good and just want to know if I can take it. :(

  • Call your local ER and see if they offer the dial a nurse program. Maybe you can get answers that way.
