Drug Safety Information

 5  pre-term labor Yes, it causes the shakes, but it also calmed the contractions and slowed baby held on til 34 weeks. This med is a real God send! My first son is now 25 years old and he has no developmental problems from the long term use while I was pregnant. I took it every 2 hours around the clock. I now take it for severe asthma and it just cannot be matched for saved my sons' lives, yes two sons, and has also saved my life. F 42 4 months

 3  pre-tern labor Very jittery and shakey, I could tell the baby was similarly effected by this drug. The brethine did stop contractions, but I feel the risks may outway the benefits. I am very concerned that my son, now 5, may be adhd...and this may be linked to my use of this drug (as directed by my OB/GYN)..I am not happy that I did not have all the information that I needed before making an intelligent choice to take this for pre-term labor... F 34

BRETHINE  (TERBUTALINE SULFATE):  Terbutaline is used to treat wheezing and shortness of breath from lung problems (e.g., asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, bronchitis and emphysema). Controlling these symptoms can decrease time lost from work or school. Terbutaline is a bronchodilator (beta-2 receptor agonist) that works by opening breathing passages to make breathing easier.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
