THE SAFETY OF INHALED CORTICOSTEROIDS (ICSs) DURING PREGNANCY OR BREASTFEEDING

 

THIS MEDICATION CAN CAUSE HARM TO YOUR BABY:

There is limited evidence available on the use of inhaled corticosteroids during pregnancy, but some studies have shown an increased risk of birth defects with these medications. Inhaled corticosteroids should be avoided during pregnancy unless the benefits of treatment outweigh the risks, as determined by your doctor. Your doctor may continue treatment with an inhaled corticosteroid during your pregnancy because treatment may be safer than having uncontrolled asthma.
