    Default I have asthma

    HELP!! I have asthma and needed to take albuterol which is a breathing treatment because of my allergies. I'm not sure if it is safe to breast feed or not?

    Also what does a green check mark mean by my question?

    Contact Infant Risk: http://www.infantrisk.com/. They'll be able to give you a definitive answer about albuterol. The green check mark may remain a mystery, though!

    I have asthma and as far as any of my doctors have told me albuterol is safe while BFing. I take it before exercise to prevent an asthma attack.

    I called the Infant Risk Service and they said that albuterol is a L1 which is safe. Thank you ladies. Also they were very helpful and very informative;-)
