What kind of injection can stop contractions?


Answer by  MsGreenGlory (50)

Among the tocolytic agents used to suppress labor, magnesium sulfate and terbutaline, a beta agonist, are frequently used, as is nifedipine, a calcium channel blocker. Other choices include NSAIDs, such as indomethacin and sulindac. Beta agonists used less often are ritodrine, fenoterol, and salbutamol. Many agents are used, and their success rates and side effects vary.

Doctors have many medications on hand to help stop contracations. Some most common ones are calcium channel blockers, Prostaglandin synthetase inhibitors, magnesium sulfate and Beta-mimetics (terbutaline, ritodrine. None of these medications should be used without a doctor being present and without medical care. If you feel you need to have your contracations stopped talk with your doctor.
