I suffered far worse side effects than mentioned in any forum I have seen and had to be tied to the bed to stop me from convulsing off it. The effects were so bad my family and husband found it too traumatic to visit me.
I spent two weeks like this until I was discharged from hospital and given tablets to continue until my pregnancy went full term. I was given the drug first in drip form, then in tablet forum after. My premature labour began at 25 weeks. The end result being an induced labour at 38 weeks because my waters broke and nothing happened for 3 days.

They gave me an oxygen mask but insisted it was a panick attack, but I heard them whispering and saw panic in the one nurse's eyes.
