Embarassed to be starting another thread on my attempts to establish breastfeeding, but anyway....
Are there any asthmatic breastfeeders who take the brown preventative inhaler - Beclometasone? Have rung NHS direct to see if I can take it while b/f but they say there has not been enough research to decide either way and I need to see the Dr. Can't get an appt til next week so just wondered if anyone had experience?
I took salbutamol and beclomethasone both whilst pregnant and breastfeeding. The Breastfeeding network drugs guide thingy says it is safe and my doctor told me it was perfectly safe to take whilst pregnant. They are topical treatments so don't get into the blood/milk/placenta
i have pformorotol(or somethin glike that-i am too lazy to go upstairs to check!) its a red and white one that i use twice a day and i have a blue one(salbutamol) that i use v occasionally. My asthma nurse was v honest and said that neither were particularly great in BF but they weren't dangerous that she knew of (her own disclaimer i think) and that it was far better to be a mum who could breathe than a mum STRUGGLING to breathe or not able to at all!
tbh i have found i hardly need any inhalors since bf-odd
