So, I got sick last week. When I get sick, my asthma gets worse. I used my medication but then ran out.
I went to the walk-in clinic today to get more and he said "are you sure your doctor said this medication was ok? It's not one I would give a pregnant woman".
My doctor and my allergist/immunologist both said this one is safe for pregnancy (symbicort) but I googled it, and it's shown to cause birth defects in animals.
Now I'm freaking. I've been taking it nightly for 15+ years. If I miss a dose, I wheeze all night. Since I got sick, I upped the dosage to 4 times a day, which is what I always do when sick. I don't know if I should fill the new script now. But my asthma is really bad and I know that I need to take something with this cold.
