This drug was used for women going into pre-mature labor it was used to stop the contrations. Unfortunatly it had major side effects on the babies. This was an experimental drug used from 1980 -1990 and was then discontinued. I was given this drug and my daughter was born 6 weeks early, had her by c-section. I begin to notice around 12yrs old that problem were arising in her mental health, still not realizing that this drug played an important factor. I have found many women that this to has happened to, and I'm still looking for more families that this has effect. It is devasting and a nightmare for my daughter who is now 30 yrs. old. If you have any information I would really like to visit with you about your child. Thank you for reading this, we need to ban together for our kids.

This is actually a drug that I am not very familiar with, though I am very sorry to hear of the issues it has caused your daughter.

Are they solely mental health, or are there other medical issues that it's suspected of causing, as well?

Learn more Ritodrine details here.

The article in that link doesn't even provide a lot of information.

It is mental and emotional, a study was not conducted or a follow up to check on these children this drug was used on. Many mothers that took this drug didn't realize that the problems their children were having was because of this drug. My daughter didn't begin to show any signs until the age of 12 and I knew there was something wrong, just wasn't sure what, now I know. I have located so many families with the same problems my daughter has, and all took the same drug as I did.

Pat, I am trying to get something through to you. {edited for privacy}. Oh I also have early onset Parkinson's at age 46 and I noted someone said their child's hands tremor. I'm a nurse by the way. So many adverse effects needs to be addressed.

If you are in this forum by now you know as a parent we are all in the same situation with our kids by taking this drug. Please know we have to stand together and get the word our there and find more parents willing to come forward, there are power in numbers and this is coming from a doctor and lawyer who says they will take this case, the more parents that get on this forum, a lawyer will look into it, as it stands now there is not enough complaints about this drug and the effects it had on our kids, get people you know to go to this forum address, later we will figure out a way to contact each other. Lets fight this for our kids that suffer on a daily basis.

Hi Pat, I can't tell you what it feels like to finally realize the cause of my mental/social issues. I'm 29, turning 30 in 4 days. My mother has always told me about the drug Ritadrin when telling me about my birth because she almost died. She heard about it being pulled from the market and she blamed it on her hemmorage that almost killed her. I am learning to be a health conscious person in my adulthood and hearing the story again, I realized, could it had effected me? I have always been different. I've always had emotional, mental and social problems and still do. It's been a personal battle for me my entire life. My own personal hell. I don't talk about it... I fake it until I make it... but it takes a toll. To be able to find what caused it, and to realize it isn't just that I'M WEIRD is a feeling I can't begin to describe. I believe that the pharm company has to know.... I believe they do know and they are flying under the radar. Something should be done. I would love to speak to someone about this... Thanks for your post.

No baby it's not you, and it's not fair, but please don't blame your mom, her doctor or yourself....My daughter is having the same problems as you are dealing with, she tells me it's a life of hell and no escape and she deals with it the same as you, but I can see there is no joy in her life...I have contacted so many lawyers and no one will touch this case, due to the only fact that the baby survived....the drug did what they said it would do...I remember asking the doctor "if this drug is doing this to me what is it doing to the baby"....his comment was "don't worry this will not harm the baby"....no it destroyed her life....and I just discovered that this was the problem just this last year...I have cried a million tears trying to find out what was wrong with her...doctor after doctor and I finally figured it out on my own...and finding all you kids and parents that have dealt with this all or your lives... and some still struggling to understand not having put this together....it's sad...and I know what kind of life you live...I call my daughter my mirror child, she is the total opposite of myself, everything she thinks and feels is just the opposite of everyone else around her...which is a consist reminder that she is different....I would love to be able to talk to you...try this {edited for privacy}...

I have a 27 yr old son who has all the emotional and mental issues many of you have written about. As a young boy he showed some odd signs but I thought he would grow of it, life circumstances (divorce) etc. I was so wrong because over the yrs. he has gotten progressively worse. He is miserable, hates his life, himself, feels like a failure and all the emotional issues discussed in these posts.
I was put on the drug to stop pre mature labor at 20 weeks. I was not advised of anything, meaning harmful side effects to my child etc. Had I known I definitely would have NOT taken this drug. My child suffers every day in every aspect of his life and it is killing me. I want to do everything and anything possible to hold the drug co. accountable. Forget all the money spent on therapists, learning disability examinations, etcetera. The day to day suffering is beyond any monetary value! What do we do next??

My first daughter has many mental/health issues and I was given yutopar when I was 36 weeks pregnant. During my second pregnancy, I was given yutopar at 16 weeks and my daughter has also suffered more severe mental issues. I, too believe it was the medication that has caused this issues in my children. With my third pregnancy, I did not take yutopar and my son is perfectly healthy with no mental issues. I was assured that the medication would not harm my baby at the time and was never told it was experimental. I wish something could be done and would like to join other in going after the makers of this drug.

We must ban together and go up against the drug co. with a legal suit. This will not make our children's suffering go away but it will help offset the cost of all the diagnostics, medicines and not least of all the anguish we have all endured. How can a drug co. put an experimental drug on the market without advising that it is experimental and the possible side effects? Did any one tell you what might happen???
