She has had issues through out her childhood with bipolar and telling unreal stories. Now at 32 she has had flare ups of uncontrollable pain and swelling in her legs. They have ran many tests on her and have tried many drugs for her pain. I would really like to know of other moms with children having health issues after receiving Ritodrine to stop contractions when possible early birth!
Hi, Tammy! Nothing I've read associates Ritodrine with childhood issues, especially mental and states that it is only used when the benefits outweighs the risk. Here's a short blurb on the topic:
I'm sorry to hear of your daughter's issues and I send you both my best wishes, Wildcat
I also received this in 1981 at 38 weeks. My daughter is very bright but all thru school had trouble completing assignments, etc. Now she struggles to find a job, and is somewhat depressed. I have worried over the years if some of this reflects the impact of Ritodrine. Is there testing that would help her? I am heart broken about this.
