Hello. Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com.
Is the tightness you mean caused by asthma? If it is confirmed that the tightness is caused by asthma, nebulisation can be done, of course, using certain drugs that are allowed in pregnancy.
Basically, the classification of whether or not the use of certain drugs during pregnancy is classified into A, B, C, D, and X. Class A and B drugs are classified as safe to use in pregnancy and have been proven by research.
Category C drugs show adverse effects on experimental fetuses, but there is not enough evidence / medical trials in humans, so they can be used during pregnancy if the benefits of using these drugs outweigh the risks or losses that can occur.
Asthma medication that is classified as safe to use, and can also be used by evaporating the patient is a group of beta 2 agonists, which includes salbutamol, terbutaline, etc. The function of this drug is to open a narrow airway when an asthma attack. The drug is categorized C, there are no asthma drugs that have category A or B so far.
Untreated asthma can result in a lack of oxygen supply to the mother, and automatically in the baby as well. This condition can have a negative impact on both the mother and fetus. Therefore, even if this category of drug is not A or B, it is still permissible because the advantages of using it outweigh the disadvantages.
However, keep in mind that not all tightness leads to asthma, shortness can also be caused by:
Pulmonary infection filled with fluid due to heart, kidney, or liver disease Anemia Lung tumors etc. And in diseases other than asthma, of course beta 2 agonists are not effective to overcome, it can actually worsen. For that, it is better to consult with a doctor first. Do not do any treatment without a doctor's direction and before an examination, especially in cases of tightness.
Of course if your problem is asthma, you should avoid the triggers of the asthma attack. If not yet known, you should check with your doctor to be tested for a skin check, to find out your allergic triggers.
That's all the explanation from me. May be useful
