Has anyone taken this for pre-term labor to stop contractions? just curious as to what happened once you stopped taking it!

Yep I took it, wound up in the hospital about an hour after I took it. For some reason it gave me massive migraines. The docs didn't believe me told me to stay on it. Well guess what I came back the next day and even sicker...My OB was pissed at the people that had treated me the night before. Turns out I was allergic to it and the reaction I was having was actually making me progress further rather than hindering labor.


Sorry totally forgot to answer the actual question, oops.....For me I went right back into labor once I quit taking it. I ended up having to take something else to halt labor. I would say that if it depends on your body, I hear some say they have taken it so long that they ended up having to be induced, whereas others like myself went right into labor once they quit.
