For Premature Labor: "I was given terbutaline for 10 days for premature labor it worked but made my hands shake so terribly I couldn't get food in my mouth. I say its ok side effects are strong though."

Bricanyl (terbutaline) for Asthma, acute: "Very effective bronchodilator. Does leave a bit of an unusual taste in the mouth after use. Recommend rinsing mouth afterward."

For Asthma, acute: "I use terbutaline inhaler under the brand of Bricanyl Turbuhaler for asthma attacks and tight chests. I get slightly more side effects from terbutaline compared to salbutamol (albuterol) but it is also more effective. Because I only use terbutaline for acute attacks/short term relief, I don't mind the side effects - but if I was on it permanently as a maintenance drug I might have a different opinion. I would recommend terbutaline because it is effective but only use for acute attack."

Brethine (terbutaline) for Premature Labor: "It slowed down my contractions pretty fast, but when it wore off the pain would start again. The reason why I stopped taking it was because it gave me a massive headache, my sinus area was hurting so bad and my ears felt like they were going to pop, other than that good medication to control contractions"

For Premature Labor: "It worked, but had all the side effects. It was worth it, still had her early but she stayed in long enough to be healthy."

Brethine (terbutaline) for Premature Labor: "It workswhile its in your system. Works fast...but it makes my hands shake bad. My heart raceses too. Hard to get use to, but slows the contractions to nothing."
