Terbutaline Lawyer & Lawsuit

On February 17, 2011 the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) added a “Black Box Warning” to Terbutaline. Terbutaline injections or infusion pump transmission has been linked to an increased risk of serious, life-threatening side effects including heart problems and death to fetus, neonate, and/or mother when administered to pregnant women.

If you or a loved one has been injured or killed after receiving a Terbutaline injection or infusion pump transmission, you should contact our lawyers immediately for a free confidential case evaluation. You may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and we can help.

FDA Warning – Off Label Use of Terbutaline

Terbutaline is approved to prevent and treat bronchospasm (narrowing of airways) associated with asthma, bronchitis, and emphysema. The drug is sometimes used off-label (an unapproved use) for acute obstetric uses, including treating preterm labor and treating uterine hyperstimulation. Terbutaline has also been used off-label over longer periods of time in an attempt to prevent recurrent preterm labor.

Terbutaline Side Effects

The possible side effects of Terbutaline administration to pregnant women include:

  • Increased heart rate
  • Transient hyperglycemia
  • Hypokalemia
  • Cardiac arrhythmias
  • Pulmonary edema
  • Myocardial ischemia
  • Death to fetus neonate and/or mother
