Anyone prescribed brethine for pre-term labor? Sunday night I was admitted into L&D for pre-term labor at 32 weeks. I am now home on bedrest and have been prescribed the oral form of brethine to stop contractions. I've been hearing a lot/reading a lot about the side effects this drug has on infants and the controversy it's causing among med professionals. My dr had assured me it was safe but I still plan on discussing it with him further at my appt on Thurs. Just curious if anyone else has been prescribed this or what you have heard or know about this drug. Thanks ladies!
