    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. When I was born I had tachycardia and had to be put in the NICU. 19 years later, I have issues with hypoglycemia (getting enought glucose to my brain, etc.)My hands are usually shaky, but the hypoglycemia makes it worse. I've gotten to the point that it doesn't really bother me, but so ... Show Full Comment

    I took this medication while pregnant with my second child who is now five. It worked well enough to help me keep contractions at bay for ten weeks and keep her in until 36 weeks. I was dissapointed to read the reveiw saying she would rather risk having her child early than be shaky and have a rapid heartbeat. Let me tell you, my first child was born at 30 weeks. 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 thought that the my baby and I were going to have a heart attack. 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
