Preterm labor is a condition in pregnancy where regular contractions have caused a change in your cervix which requires a medicine to relax the uterus. This medicine will be prescribed to you by your care provider and is usually taken every 3 to 6 hours depending on your contraction pattern. It is very important not to miss any of your pills because your uterus is dependent on frequent dosing to maintain a relaxed state
Terbutaline is a very effective medicine, although it has some side effects that will not cause harm but can be uncomfortable.
Most side effects are transient and disappear over time.
IF ANY SIDE EFFECTS ARE INTOLERABLE, CALL YOUR CARE PROVIDER
