  • I was on breathine for months. It did make me tired. I think it can also cause a racing heart. (I was told to wait to take it if my pulse was too fast.) The headache and contractions, I feel, are a cause for concern. I think you might need a BP check and some monitoring. Call your doctor.

  • I know you don't want to, but you really do need to call your doctor. If you are still having contractions until the next dose it may not be working for you. My sister in law went through so many meds trying to stop labor and was on complete bedrest. Finally she told them no more. They gave her a steroid shot to help babys lungs mature and kept her on bedrest, but stopped the meds. My neice wasn't born until 38 weeks. She was perfect. Talk to your doctor they will help you.

  • I agree I think you should call the Dr and get looked at, I've never had to take meds for that but if its suppost to stop contractions and your still having them then something doesn't sound right.
