If I am pregnant, is it safe to use Brovana?

If you're pregnant, it may not be safe for you to take Brovana (arformoterol), a drug prescribed to relax and open the airways in people who have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), a group of lung problems that includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema. There is not enough research in pregnant women to know for certain whether Brovana is safe to take during pregnancy. Animal studies suggest that Brovana may harm a developing fetus, but more research is needed. If you become pregnant while taking Brovana, call your doctor right away.
