I took this drug for at least 2 months for premature labor. I felt as though I could climb the walls. I felt like I was on speed. I took this with two pregnancies and now both my sons have numerological problems cognizant problems. The problem is: the worst of the problems did not show up until their teens. I was told by my doctors that it would not harm them

My mom took this drug while pregnant with me. She was on Tributaline for about 5 weeks prior to my birth.

He spent his first four weeks of l ... Show Full Comment

I took this drug to prevent pre-term labor. I found it to be very effective in preventing my contractions. I had absolutely no side-effects and my daughter was born perfectly healthy and 4 years later she still is. I was unaware that this drug was not originally intended for that purpose but over-all I think my dr. made a good call putting me on it.

The Dr. had been given it to me for pre- term contractions. I guess it worked for a while; but it was like they shot me up with a case and a half of energy drinks all at one time.

I asked all of the Drs.& nurses if there were any bad side affects on the baby, because if I was feeling this way, then the baby would definitly wou ... Show Full Comment
