Who should not use Astepro?

Women who are pregnant or breast-feeding should not use Astepro. Doctors are not sure whether Astepro will have a negative effect on a developing fetus or whether it will pass through breast milk. Children under 6 years old should not use Astepro, as it has not been proven safe and effective for that age group. People who are allergic to azelastine or any of the ingredients found in Astepro should not use the medication. There are some risks for people with kidney disease who use Astepro.
