  • Myoclonus induced by salbutamol: A case report [Case Reports]
    Biomedica 2018; 38(3):303-307Montoya-Giraldo MA, Montoya DV, … Zuluaga AF
  • Salbutamol is a β2 adrenergic agonist widely prescribed in patients with obstructive and restrictive lung diseases. The main side effects associated with its use are tachycardia and tremor. Myoclonus is an involuntary, irregular, abrupt, brief and sudden muscular contraction, which can be generalized, focal or multifocal. We report the case of a 61-year-old patient presenting with myoclonus diffi…

  • Drugs and Lactation Database (LactMed): Metaproterenol [BOOK]
    National Library of Medicine (US): Bethesda (MD)BOOK
  • Although no published data exist on the use of metaproterenol by mouth or inhaler during lactation, data from the related drug, terbutaline, indicate that very little is expected to be excreted into breastmilk.[1] The authors of several reviews and an expert panel agree that use of inhaled bronchodilators is acceptable during breastfeeding because of the low bioavailability and maternal serum lev…
  • Acute tocolysis for uterine tachysystole or suspected fetal distress. [Review]
    Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2018; 7:CD009770Leathersich SJ, Vogel JP, … Hofmeyr GJ
  • CONCLUSIONS: There is insufficient evidence to determine the effects of tocolytics for uterine tachysystole or suspected fetal distress during labour. The clinical significance for some of the improvements in measures of fetal well-being with tocolytics is unclear. The sample sizes were too small to detect effects on neonatal morbidity, mortality or serious adverse effects. The majority of studies are from high-income countries in facilities with access to caesarean section, which may limit the generalisability of the results to lower-resource settings, or settings where caesarean section is not available.Further well-designed and adequately powered RCTs are required to evaluate clinically relevant indicators of maternal and neonatal morbidity and mortality.
