Tocolytic agents

A drug may be classified by the chemical type of the active ingredient or by the way it is used to treat a particular condition. Each drug can be classified into one or more drug classes.

Tocolytic agents inhibit uterine contractions and suppress pre-term labor. Tocolytics can delay labor and give more time for fetal growth and for the fetal lungs to mature. They are most effective when given early in premature labor.
