It helped keep me from having 2 children too early, however I also had tremors, etc. but the two children born of it have issues. One is a hi-functioning autistic child with ADHD and ODD. My other child has OCD and ODD. I wonder.

I'm unhappy with this medication. I truly feel this medication has caused my son to have ADD. Any suggestions on where I can go for advice or information is greatly appreciated. I really think doctors should explain all the effects of drugs before giving.

I was placed on this medication for early labor and though it does make my heart race a little its not to unsettling. The most important is that it eased up the contractions I was experiencing and prevented early labor so my baby wouldn't be born at 32 weeks

Comment:
Because of this medication I delivered my healthy daughter at 34 weeks instead of 27 weeks. I didn't have any side effects with the sub q method. However, the oral (pill) did not agree with me. I experienced tremors, nervousness and was still having contractions.
