Procardia could work for a few days or a few weeks. Its used when someone is teetering with preterm labor and helps stop/soothe contractions that change your cervix. For me it only worked for about 4 days then I needed new meds bc I went into active labor (29 weeks). If your body is TRULY wanting to go into labor, procardia will not work. You can stay at 2cm dilated for weeks. I was at 2 from 28 weeks. I wouldn't worry about being on strict bedrest once you hit 34 weeks. In reality 33 weeks is early, but its not THAT bad.

Did anyones procardia not stop thier contractions?
Yesterday my dr had put me on the pill procardia, did these pills not help stop your contractions or did they work well? Also what side affects did you get? Asked by Kelly Casalman 3 months ago.

I took procardia from about 22 weeks on with my triplets for uterine irritability. They did not stop them completely. The first few days I was not contracting but a few a day, but by the end of the first week, they were back. You still need to take it easy and drink a ton of water. I continued to have contractions for the remainder of my pregnancy but the procardia did make it better and made them less severe. I didnt have any side effects from the procardia really... I would get dizzy when I stood up some times because my bp was low (its a blood pressure medication) but it was not anything I couldnt deal with. If you are worried though, I would go back to the doctor or hospital. They can give you terbuatline which is stronger and more efficient than procardia at stopping contractions. Answered by Li Engelberg 3 months ago.

I had several IV doses of it, and it did absolutely nothing other than give me a ridiculous migraine. The further you are in your pregnancy, the less effective the meds become. After that, they gave me terbutaline (sp?) by IV which slowed them down somewhat, and it wasn't until they added Nubain that the contractions finally stopped after 12 hours of being every 2 to 3 minutes. Answered by Altha Hengel 3 months ago.

i'm a labor and transport nurse. We prescribe procardia to many many women those with PTL. The effectiveness at struggling with PTL is very variable, and after struggling with, it is likewise very variable on while labor will start up. many of the girls human beings at my well-being facility stop around 34 weeks rather of 36, and a few of them finally end up going late! some circulate into labor an identical day, for others it is days or even weeks. there's no genuine thank you to predict what is going to take place till you surely circulate off the drugs. good success!

Contractions & taking procardia.?

I'm 32 weeks pregnant with my first, and only 17 years old. I started having sharp pains in my stomach [contractions] right after Thanksgiving. I couldn't time them myself, but I went to the hospital to make sure everything was okay. I thought maybe I was just having Braxton Hicks because everyone told me with them you can't count them out, & with contractions you can. Well when they hooked me up to the monitor I was showing that I was having strong contractions every five minutes, even tho I could only feel certain ones. They instantly gave me a shot to stop them, seeing as I was only 30 weeks pregnant than. Well I got released and came back home. On December 20th I ended up back in the hospital with the same pains, & again I couldn't count them but seeing as they was contractions last time I went to make sure everything was okay. Well, once again I was having strong contractions & they was very close. They gave me the shot, being 32 weeks pregnant. The shot didn't work, so they gave me these pills called Procardia. After a little while my contractions went down & they sent me home again. The next night I had the same problems, & returned to the hospital. The hospital gave me the pills again, & at first it didn't work. They gave me another dose of pills & the contractions finally went away. A few hours later they released me & gave me a prescription for Procardia. I am to take the Procardia every 6 hours to keep the contractions away, but I feel as if there is still slight pains in my stomach. The pains ain't strong, but I don't know if I should go back or not. Also, when I take the pills, about five minutes later my stomach will cramp up very bad & my back will lock up & I won't be able to move without crying. It's literally the worse pain I've ever experienced, but it goes away about twenty minutes later. Also, could the Procardia be hurting my baby? Could I also be having strong contractions with only feeling slight ones? Should they do an ultrasound at the hospital to make sure everything is okay [which they have not!]? & Could I possibly be farther along than what they think, seeing as I didn't find out I was pregnant until 18 weeks & the baby is just wanting to come out? Please let me know what you think. I really need to know what I should do. & If you have went threw this before, let me know what happened. Answered by Dave Neuhaus 3 months ago.

Procardia is a heart medication that also affects the uterine muscles. You should have been put on strict bed rest along with taking this. You need to be resting up as much as possible. At 18 weeks you wouldn't be able to tell for sure by ultrasound how far along you actually are. Your own date of conception would be a more accurate predictor of a due date. That said, then most the ultrasound estimated due date would not be more that 2-3 weeks out, which means that your baby is not ready to be born. I can completely empathise with worrying about taking medication when pregnant, but the benefits of keeping your baby inside you would outweigh side effects of the medication at this point. You will probably come off the medication at around 36 weeks if all is well, and you should also be given some steriod injections to help your baby's lungs mature. The best thing for you to do at the moment is get plenty of rest, stay off your feet as much as possible and continue to be monitored by a doctor. Keep taking the medication and get to the hospital if you feel it isn't working. At 17 you are very brave for facing all of this responsibility and it's so sad that you have all these complications to deal with on top of everything else. If you are finding all of these things a lot to deal with, try to find someone who you can chat to about it. Take care of yourself! Answered by Alphonse Vanbeek 3 months ago.


Procardia and preterm labor?
I am just asking for the record I am not trying too go into labor I am just wondering. I am taking the medicane too stop the contractions. Thank you Asked by Beverly Pilkerton 3 months ago.

Take that Procardia! I know it can make you feel wierd. It is normal to feel jittery, like your heart is pounding out of your chest, and you may have facial flushing. It may also be hard to sleep. The benefit your baby will get will out-weigh all of this. 31 wks is early, every day you can keep that baby in-utero makes a difference. Have your doctors talked to you about Celestone or Betamethasone? This is a steriod injection given every 12 hrs for one day (sometimes more than that) to help the baby's lungs mature a little faster to give them a better chance of not having breathing problems or infections. Lungs are one of the last things to fully develop in a fetus. This is generally used if the doctors feel that delivery is iminate. You may also want to ask about a Fetal Fibronection Test. This is a vaginal swab to test for the excretion of certain enzymes that MAY indication labor in the next 2 weeks. This is not a yes/no type of test, just the best we have medically right now. Try to stay off your feet as much as possible. It's hard when you have a little one at home also. Think about it this way, do whatever you can to protect the health of your unborn child. Patients can be 1cm dilated for months. Good luck to you! Answered by Sook Budnick 3 months ago.

Really after 34 weeks the little one will do beautiful good. He could have a few respiring problems or a couple of minor disorders that'll maintain him within the NICU for a brief interval, however there is a danger even that would possibly not be indispensable. I began having preterm hard work at 34 weeks and the procardia did not paintings. The later in being pregnant, the fewer mighty the meds are. That's by and large a further rationale your medical professional mentioned there is no must take it anymore. While there is no strategy to inform whilst your LO will arrive, should you real keep on mattress relaxation, it is going to purchase extra time. I've been contracting like loopy (as quite often as each and every two to three mins) for the final month and so they have not made any development, so it is viable your contractions is also slight ample to do not anything extra than simply annoy you in the meanwhile. Good good fortune! And keep in mattress :) Answered by Deja Denten 3 months ago.

I was on procardia. What mg's and how often are you taking it? And when you stop it, it does not send you into labor. I also had a cerclage too. And after I stopped the procardia I think it was almost 2 weeks before I gave birth. Iwas on procardia with the last 2 as a part of my prenatal care because I was high risk.

If I don't take procardia....?
I know I ask alot of questions but...if I was to stop taking the procardia will I begin to dialate again? Asked by Roma Domingos 3 months ago.

No "rebound effect" has been observed upon discontinuation of PROCARDIA. However, if discontinuation of PROCARDIA is necessary, sound clinical practice suggests that the dosage should be decreased gradually with close physician supervision. Pregnancy: Pregnancy Category C: Nifedipine has been shown to produce teratogenic findings in rats and rabbits, including digital anomalies similar to those reported for phenytoin. Digital anomalies have been reported to occur with other members of the dihydropyridine class and are possibly a result of compromised uterine blood flow. Nifedipine administration was associated with a variety of embryotoxic, placentotoxic, and fetotoxic effects, including stunted fetuses (rats, mice, rabbits), rib deformities (mice), cleft palate (mice), small placentas and underdeveloped chorionic villi (monkeys), embryonic and fetal deaths (rats, mice, rabbits), and prolonged pregnancy/decreased neonatal survival (rats; not evaluated in other species). On a mg/kg basis, all of the doses associated with the teratogenic embryotoxic or fetotoxic effects in animals were higher (3.5 to 42 times) than the maximum recommended human dose of 120 mg/day. On a mg/m2 basis, some doses were higher and some were lower than the maximum recommended human dose but all are within an order of magnitude of it. The doses associated with placentotoxic effects in monkeys were equivalent to or lower than the maximum recommended human dose on a mg/m2 basis. There are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women. PROCARDIA should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus. If you want to stop taking this drug taper it off. But definitely talk to your doc and tell him you want to be put on something different. At 32 weeks that is where you have to research and make your own decition as to whether or not to continue taking it. It doesn't stop dilation it stops your labor from progressing. I hope I helped. Good luck. Answered by Dana Dalo 3 months ago.

incredibly after 34 weeks the toddler will do appealing good. He could have some respiration issues or a pair of stripling issues that'll shelter him interior the NICU for a quick era, although there's a risk even that should no longer be necessary. i began out having preterm stressful artwork at 34 weeks and the procardia did no longer artwork. The later in being pregnant, the less powerful the meds are. that's by potential of and massive a further reason your medical expert reported there isn't any ought to take it anymore. at the same time as there isn't any technique to tell at the same time as your LO will arrive, ought to you genuine save on mattress rest, it is going to purchase further time. i've got been contracting like loopy (as incredibly usually as each and every 2 to 3 minutes) for the terrific month and additionally they have not made any progression, so that's achievable your contractions is likewise gentle satisfactory to do no longer something better than merely annoy you interior the meanwhile. good good fortune!

34 weeks pregnant and on Procardia to stop contractions?
they gave me 2 steroid shots for his lungs to develop faster Asked by Gilda Lettsome 3 months ago.

im 34 weeks pregnant and went into pre term labor a couple days ago..the doctor put me on procardia to stop the contractions...i take 1 every 6 hours..but im having a bad reaction to them..my face is flushed and hot and i feel really weird. my baby is measuring 2 weeks bigger and hes already 5.5lbs..if i stop this medicine and went into labor do you think he would be okay? i just cant take this medicine anymore Answered by Ira Briones 3 months ago.

omg the same exact thing happened to me and I'm on procardia too!!! for lack of a better word I'm kind of 'glad' someones going through the same thing I am (not actually glad but at least I know I'm not the only one). I also went into preterm at 34 weeks and since I've been home I feel the same way when I take them but I've noticed that as I'm getting more use to them they seem to work better. In the hospital I was getting them every 4 hours and my dr sent me home and told me to take them every 6 hours since they were slowing down the contractions but they never actually stopped. At first from hour 4-6 I would get contractions again and feel like I couldn't breathe which was the same way I felt in the hospital. now I'm between 35 and 36 and I dont think I'm getting real contractions (but then again I didn't know I was having them in the first place because I wasn't feeling them) I just notice I'm having more braxton hicks and for the past 2 days I've been getting sharp pains down there and period like cramps. I wouldn't just stop taking it. Your doctor should be seeing you weekly, even though most people dont go weekly til 36, because of your preterm experience (or at least that's what my dr does). When I went to my follow-up after being released from the hospital the dr I saw told me that not only does procardia work to slow/stop contractions but it's a blood pressure medication. I don't remember my blood pressure being particularly high but I did notice all of my swelling I had prior to going into labor disappeared when I started taking the meds. However it's back now. I asked my doctor when I could stop taking it and they told me I had to wait til my next appointment and go on the NST monitor to check for any contractions then we'll talk about getting off of it. Because it's a blood pressure medication I wouldn't mess around with it, especially if you felt the same way I did with the flushed face and racing heartbeat. For me at least that side affect of the medication stopped. When I had a sono at 34, in the hospital, they told me my baby weighs a little over 5lbs and that was fine for 34 weeks, not too big or small. I also got the steroid shots and because the baby was engaged when they checked me in the hospital I asked the dr at the follow up if she thought I'd go into labor soon and I was worrying about the baby being in the NICU. She told me at 35 weeks (which I was closer to at that point), and being over 5lbs I didn't have much to worry about because they usually do fine and thats without the steroid shots but she told me to still restrict my activties not complete bedrest but take it easy (at my 35 week appt I was told to ease back into my regular activities) because she wanted me to get to AT LEAST 36, which she considers full term. I would just call the dr and let them know how youre feeling. If anything they might make you come in to get on the monitor to make sure everythings okay. Sorry if that was long, good luck and feel free to email me. Answered by Moon Glass 3 months ago.

I am also 34 weeks pregnant. I had an ultrasound yesterday and the tech told me that my baby was at about 5 lb. 7 oz. (which is leading me to believe that my last 'period' was not really a period but breakthrough bleeding). I have the book 'Baby's Best Chance' and they say that at 36 weeks baby can be safely born. There is a chance that you really are as much as 35 weeks along as well. The date the dr. gives you based on your last period assumes that you ovulated exactly 14 days after the first day of your last period. Some women ovulate earlier and some later in their cycle so 14 days is just the average. I would not recommend stopping the medication without dr. approval, however I do not think that there would be adverse effects to baby as long as his lungs are developed enough. Answered by Dusty Aring 3 months ago.

Please don't stop the medicine. Fetal measurements can be way off - mine were by 20% with both kids. IF your baby was born now, he would probably be ok long-term. But he would almost definitely spend time in the NICU and have some initial breathing problems. My son was 32 weeks and spent 6 weeks in the NICU. My daughter was 34 weeks and spent 10 days there. There are no guarantees based on gestation. Boys tend to have longer stays because they develop more slowly than girls. Your body will adjust to the medication. I know it's hard, but having a baby in the NICU is going to be much harder emotionally than feeling the way you do right now. Hang in there - keeping that baby inside as long as possible is going to be the best thing for him. Answered by Mellissa Ghanayem 3 months ago.

3 years ago, I was diagnosed - hypertension with a reading of 160/100. I used to feel dizzy a lot, my legs had awful cramps, and levels were very low in my potassium, causing my fingers and toes to always cramp together. One day I started to feel really faint while I was driving with my daughter in the back seat and I passed out, hitting 3 cars and ending up in a ditch. That moment,I knew I had to do something because my meds weren't working. I heard about this diet from a friend and thought I'd give it a shot. The results have been remarkable. In just 21 days, I honestly can't remember feeling this good, my blood pressure went from 175/110 to 125/70. Answered by Olene Karner 3 months ago.

Do not stop the medicine! At 34 weeks, his lungs might not be completely mature and he might have respiratory problems. The estimate for his weight could be off as there is no real way of knowing until he is out. If the doctors thought he was ready, they would not have given you the medicine. Also, his weight does not necessarily guarantee he is ready to be on the outside...his organ development does. Suck it up for a few more weeks, give him a fair chance. Talk to your doc before stopping anything! Answered by Dania Gulbranson 3 months ago.

Answered by Joye Turrill 3 months ago.

If the procardia was ordered by a doctor, he obviously feels it is totally necessary. Stay on it! Babies born on time do far better than those born early and are at a much lower risk for problems that can develop after birth: ADD, ADHD, respiratory issues (including constant pneumonia and asthma), learning disabilities, etc. I have known women who have taken procardia and their babies were fine. Allow the doctors to buy your baby some time. The time for your baby is important. Even though he would be fine if you have him now, he would be at greater risk for things to develop in his early years. He will be far better off if born closer to his real due date which is why the doctors want to buy him additional time. Answered by Myrtie Mollins 3 months ago.

Thanks :) Answered by Stanton Luptak 3 months ago.

Terbutaline is a short term solution to end contractions when they happen, while procardia (nifedipine) is taken daily as a prophylactic measure to prevent contractions from happening in the first place. Procardia is primarily for blood pressure, but it works and is commonly used to stop preterm labor. The mechanism it uses to correct high blood pressure is it relaxes smooth muscle (which is a component of your blood vessels), and when your blood vessels relax there is less pressure. Your uterus also contains smooth muscle and therefore the Procardia acts to relax that muscle too, preventing or weaking contractions. If the Procardia doesn't quite cut it and you have breakthrough contractions (more than 6 per hour) then Terbutaline can be given also. Answered by Jesenia Tasse 3 months ago.

I just got out of the hospital yesterday due to preterm labor, I was there for a few days, and they finally got me from having contractions, and I've only dilated to 2cm. Anyway, I'm on procardia, the pill, I take it once a day to make sure my contractions don't start back up. I was put on bed rest, but I am not the type of person who is gonna sit in a bed or on the couch all day. I have a two year old, which I am getting help with, like lifting her, giving her a bath, stuff that i just need help with that I want put my body in stress. Walking is good for you I know that, but would it be good for me now? Or should I try to avoid it as much as possible. Like going shopping, but not over doing it, would that be ok?

Answered by Alaina Antolos 3 months ago.

I was given procardia for preterm labor with my last pregnancy, but at the same time I was also on a magnesium drip and indomethicin. I don't think the indomethicin and the procardia were given on the same days. I didn't have any negative side effects from it, and I was on strict bed rest in the hospital. My son still ended up arriving early at 26 weeks and 4 days, but the medications held off labor for two and a half weeks anyway. If the doctor put you on bed rest then you need to follow it. It is very difficult to see your baby born too early and in the NICU hooked up to machines and wires! Exactly how far along are you right now? If you are walking around going shopping you can go into labor, and since you are at risk for *preterm* labor it is definitely NOT good for you in this case. Don't go shopping! Send your partner out.

Procardia is a blood pressure medication that relaxes the smooth muscles (including your uterus) which is why it can help stop contractions. However, like any medication, your body may not respond well to it and have contractions anyway. Did your doctor tell you to take every 2 hours if needed? It shouldn't numb the contractions it should stop them, if it's not working there are other medications they can try. Tell your doctor right away that you are still contracting. He may prescribe terbutaline (Brethine) instead. If that doesn't work and you are still contracting (and it starts dilating your cervix) you may be admitted to the hospital for an IV of Mag sulfate to stop the contractions. I took one pill and it dropped my blood pressure too low, so I couldn't take it. Everyone responds differently to it. Answered by Adalberto Bottcher 3 months ago.
