Has anyone taken or know about this medicine? My doc prescribed it when I was 22weeks I am 24 now and he told me to take it for the remainder of my pregnancy. My question is .....is it safe for the baby if I continue to take this ?

It is used for preterm labor to stop contractions.

You should be talking to your doctor about stuff like this

Yes, it's safe to continue to take. The benefits to it outweigh the bad of it. I'm taking it now at almost 34 weeks.

You really do need to talk to your dr about any meds that he/she prescribes for you.
