I have a child that is 11 a child that is 6 and a child that is 4.5 two out of three have development issues (so far) I was given this drug with all 3 pictures. I am unsure if this is considered past the status of limitations because I was not made aware of issues with the drug until recently. I have been looking for a link for sometime as these are not issues that we ever had in my family before. I have not found a lawyer that will review my case yet after several months if trying.

How can there be a statue of limitations on something you are not told about. The only reason i found this was because i personally looked for reasons both of my children now 27 and 29 have always had problems at no point did any physician offer any clue that this might be part or all of the problem

I was was not informed or had knowledge that this medication was harmful to me ir my unborn child. He is 23 but has cognitive issues whuch was present throughout his childhood. I was on the terbutaline pump at least 3 months, 24 hours a day. Please let me know what recourse I have. Thanjs

I am been suspicious for years that the terbutaline I received during my pregnancy affected my son. I researched it years ago and found nothing. I am a labor and delivery nurse and have heard nothing in all my years of practice. This drug was used like candy back in the late 80’s and 90’S and then all of a sudden it was not being used any more with no explanation. My son, who is 23 yrs old, suffers from depression, addictive behaviors, OCD, anxiety and panic disorder. Where can I find help??

I have twin boys, now 23 years old. They have OCD, ADD, depression, anxiety, and one has anger issues with bipolar disorder. I just looked up the mediation I took during my pregnancy. I took the Terbuline first in pill form then was switched to a pump for last 6-7 weeks of my pregnancy. I am not sure how my one son will make thru a life of turmoil.

This medication was infused into me for all 4 of my pregnancies. I was given the max dose and had to have mag sulfate washes in the hospital every few weeks. I have noticed delays in processing at least two of my children. I happened to discover that this drug was “black boxed” just last week while taking to a friend. It is a horrible way to find out that side effects and knowledge of the dangers have been known for years. Please let me know if there is recourse.

How can there be a time limit on something that was not advertised. Other so called bad drugs arte all over the TV and radio. My son is 23 yrs old and has many problems I think are related to the terbutaline that was given to me x month during my pregnancy

I just had open heart surgery in July. I am 41 years old. I was prescribed brethine for pre-term labor in 2001 for my pregnancy. I had no heart murmur when I began taking the drug in February. I continued to take the maximum dose until late April. I was told the murmur would go away but it progressively got worse. I complained of high heart rate and chest discomfort but that was a side effect of the drug. I had to have the valve repaired this year. I will probably have surgery at least two more times in my life. I am wondering if there is recourse. I had no problems before taking the drug. I will continue to have problems for the rest of my life.

I also have a 23-year-old son with severe mental illness and substance abuse issues. I was on Terbutaline from 20 weeks on…and I never knew it was potentially dangerous. I really feel for you because, like you, I don’t see how my son will ever have a life. He has no ability to really function on his own, yet he thinks he can. I’m in constant agony with no ideas of where to turn for help. Maybe we can gather together parents experiencing this and file a class action lawsuit.

Reading all of your posts confirms the possibility that my middle child’s deafness has been caused by Terbutaline. I’ve had three pregnancies. My first came in early at 36 wk with no issues in 2001. With my second in 2004, I began having contractions at 28 wks and was placed on bed rest with permanent Terbutaline pump. Every day i would have to place a monitor around my abdomen 3 times a day and send a report to a Nurse who would interpret it and say if I was showing signs of contractions. She then would tell me to administer more Terbutaline if needed. At 36 wks exactly the Dr. took me off the pump and within 24 hours i was in labor. Thankful and with a great sense of relief my baby had 10 fingers and 10 toes, was weighing 6.5lbs and had no obvious malformations so yes 8 weeks in bed was worth it. At age 3 his speech was almost non existent, didn’t have much interest in anything and would have many tantrums. After a year and a half of testing and researching including 3 independent psychological evaluations, and 3 hearing tests we found out that he was Moderately Deaf and would be for the rest of his life. He was also diagnosed with ADD a couple of years back. I could go on for hrs. talking about everything we’ve done and how I’m always looking to improve his life and make sure that he lives a full life just like he’s siblings. Making the point stronger that Terbutaline was the cause of my sons deafness, during my third pregnancy in 2009 i was obviously classified as high risk but this time the Dr. decided to place me again in bed rest at 28wks **No Medicine** i delivered my youngest at FULL TERM 40 wks. So there you have it…my Terbuline nightmare

I was put on this medicine my whole pregnancy and my son has so many issues I truly feel the terbutaline caused it I was not told anything about the problems it could cause I would like to try and find out

I think it is said that there is a statue of limitations my son is 20 and my youngest son is 14 when I inquired about the medicine years ago I was informed that there was no open cases in reference to it and everyone looked at me like I was crazy I have both my sons who had seizure disorders from birth the youngest one until he was 9 the oldest one he still has issues not as bad I was only informed about the terbutaline lawsuits 4 years ago and have spoken to several people who have insisted the statue of limitations is out but that does not help me seeing what my children have gone through with learning disabilities forgetfulness comprehension been able to speak fluent That’s not including the seizures that my oldest son had during school that cause me to have to keep him back a grade I think it’s ridiculous we rely on doctors who think they know more than us and we except and pray that they doing but right by us but in the long-term the drug companies know that their liabilities and not wanting to be responsible even after they’ve made millions and millions of dollars off of giving us these drugs the ones that are really suffering are our children.

Oh yeah mind you to add insult to injury to the comment I just posted my 20 year old had to be resuscitated at Birth so they described him and it is in his neuropsychologist records that it was described as him having a stroke in the womb but y’all have a statue of limitations

This isn’t right I only just found out about the risks of this drug and my children and I have been affected my oldest is 20 my youngest is 12 they gave me shots of this every other day for the last four months of each one of my 3 pregnancies and gave a prescriptions to take the pills every few hours for my whole pregnancies now im having heart problems all 3 of my kids have problems
