  • They gave it to me a month ago. I hated the way I felt after. My blood pressure dropped and I was so dizzy and light headed for about an hour. But it worked.

  • No (Brethine/Terbutaline) here.

    Are you having PTL?
    If so, are you looking for alternatives?

  • Yes. what did you need to know about it?? It increases your heart rate so you need to check your pulse before you take it. It worked for me.

  • I took it for 10 week's it worked, but was not made aware of all of the possible side effects and that it is not FDA APPROVED for the treatment of preterm labor
