    My chemist said yes to normal over the counter ventolin (the sort you take when you are feeling tight in the chest) but if you take preventative medication for asthma then there are certain sorts you cant take

    Yep I have been on Ventolin the whole of this pg as well as a preventer. As maybe baby said there are certain preventers that you can't take.
    It's better to be able to breathe properly than not.
