Pat Says:


My husband and I have had our daughter which is now 30 tested for everything and the doctors can't seem to be able to give us a diagnosis, and things are not getting any better, my beautiful daughter has struggled and suffered so much and it breaks my heart to know that Yutopar that was given to me, which affected my baby and I knowing, my that daughter is the one who suffers from it on a daily basis. My second child is normal, and I did not take the drug while carring him. I would really like to talk to all of you, something needs to be done to care for these kids that are now adults that can not cope, sleep, eat, extremely depressed, sucidal thoughts, learning problems, unable to conform to society, lies, bi-polar, anti-social, can't function in everyday life and with everyday problems... We need help... if anyone out there could possible contact me {edited for privacy}.

I'm so sorry to hear about your daughter's negative experience with Yutopar. Other than taking action with lawsuits, the only other thing I would suggest is that you report this drug to the FDA via their medwatch program at:
fda.gov/Safety/MedWatch/default.htm

However I don't know how manufacturers might go about compensating you for what you and your daughters had to go through as a result of taking their product. But I'd imagine this is where you'd have to take legal action.

I hope this helps! Looking forward to hearing what others might have to say...

I am reading all this crying hysterically to my husband finally figuring out why my 30 year old son has struggled throughout his life with emotional issues. so many of what I am reading about all these children have gone through.I have no doubt in my mind being on ritodrine has destroyed my son. I remember having to go off it at 8 months of pregnancy because i would call them that the baby was going crazy in my stomach.. after years and years of pondering and searchimg for answers from god,knowing in my heart something went wrong somewhere because one child has these issues and 2 after him do not. I came to look up this drug just wondering. and here are my answers. so many of our children were damaged by this drug. and everyone walks away scot free because of disorders that cannot be seen most times physically. what a shame. us mothers need to get together and fight for this. someone should be held acccountable.

I have found so many families of grown children that were affected by this drug and their lives turned up side down, ours included. I was put on this drug in my 6 month and took the drug by pill and IV when the pill didn't work, unfortunately I had no idea that this was an experimental drug and what effect it would have on our lives, and my daughter stuggles with it on a daily basis. I agree they should not be able to get away with this.

I absolutely agree with you, yes there are many, and I do mean many families that are stuggling with mental and emotional disorders caused from this drug. I have 2 children (grown) my daughter is dysfunctional I took the drug carrying her, and my son who is normal and I didn't take the drug with him. So many families will tell you the same thing, this is insane for drug companies to have allowed this to happen then just walk away. Yes something needs to be done.

Maria W. Says:

OMG I was reading about your daughter. Im really sorry you have to go through all of that. I gave birth so a son 23yrs old. He is disabled and I've never been able to get a real reason as to why he is disabled. He is my middle son. My first born and last born are "normal". I never took that medicine with them either. My son takes medicine for bi-polar, schizophrenia and to sleep. In the last few months he is getting worse. He now spends most of the day pacing back and forth aimless. He looks lost in his own brain. Mental retardation, doesnt read or write...... so many other things. Please let me know if we can do something.

Tracy N. Says:

Hi My Name is Tracy and my 23 year old son was diagnosed with mixed Bipolar Disorder and severe Anxiety last year while he was serving our country in the Air Force. He was discharged without any assistance. He has attempted suicide several times and is currently undergoing shock treatments. I am a nurse and when I was 20 weeks pregnant I went into labor with him and they stopped my labor and then sent me home on oral yutopar until 26 weeks. When I heard that is was banned I knew something was not right and I also questioned why he had this horrible mental illness. I also believe the medication caused this since my oldest son is completely normal I did not use this drug with him. I would also be interested in a law suit.

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.
