Preterm Labor Meds

I am on hospital bed rest. The doctor has been playing with medication to keep me from having contractions. We've decided to to Procardia 10 mg every 6 hours and Ibuprofen 800 mg every 8 hours. Has anyone had any success with using both? I am 26 weeks pregnant.

  • I had success with Procardia with my first I had to take it daily.  Then from time to time I had to go get a shot in Labor and Delivery.

  • Hi dear....what shot did you get please 
  • I'm currently on a medication called progesterone, also known as endometrin. It's to help strengthen my cervix and prevent preterm Labor,  however I am being monitored now with ultrasounds every two weeks as a precaution.  No need rest yet.  My feet burn however if I'm on them for a while.  
  • I was on procardia when 30 weeks pregnant, had strict bedrest and was given lung shots for my son in case we had to deliver that weekend. Made it another 6 weeks until I got pre-e. But it definitely stopped labor, I think I was given another drug as well but I can't remember it's been so long. Wasn't given Ibuprofen. Hope it keeps it all under control!
