Question: Asmanex and small pox vacination

 wyobull - Tue Apr 28, 2009 8:55 pm

I would like to know if there is any problem with getting a small pox vacination while regularly using Asmanex to treat asthma. One of the precautions I read stated that people using steriods need to take precaution but I could not find any more information than the precaution.

User avatar Hello --

There should be no special reason to avoid combining a smallpox vaccination with use of Asthmanex. The steroid warning does make sense, but there's no steroid component to smallpox vaccine, and if anything the Asthmanex may actually reduce any mild reaction to the vaccination.

Hope this answers your concern. Good luck to you.
