For Premature Labor: “Was put on this for premature labor. Yes, the side effects are not fun.....BUT my son was still born 1 month early. He was always in the low % of development while an infant, but pediatrician said that happens with preemies. During his second year we started questioning that maybe something else was wrong. At 3 yrs specialists at John Hopkins All Childrens Hospital diagnosed him with PDD, Pervasive Developmental Disorder. He's 26 now with a bunch of labels added and his mind is still that of a child. Our family wouldn't trade him for the world, BUT if I could turn back time I would have never taken this drug. My son has a beautiful life because we has such a loving family, but I wouldn't wish his disabilities on my worst enemy. I'm glad this drug is off the market.....”
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 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.”
