Terbutaline Sulfate, a drug approved by the FDA to treat asthma, is commonly used “off label” to treat preterm labor.

The drug, also marketed under the brand names Brethine and Bricanyl, is identified as a developmental neurotoxin and may cause brain damage to the fetus. When the drug is administered to pregnant women it may penetrate to the unborn baby and affect brain development. Terbutaline use during pregnancy may be associated with the following risks to babies:

  • Brain damage
  • Cognitive deficits
  • Developmental delays
  • Speech defects
  • Movement disorders

The mother may also suffer serious adverse events, such as tachycardia, pulmonary edema, and seizures. If you or your loved one has suffered a Terbutaline injury, contact us today. Submit the form to the right and we’ll let you know if you have a case and if we can represent you.
