I removed the designation "not effective" from MgSO4. I did not read the article that was referenced after this statement so I don't know the quality of the study. They may have very well found that Mag. sulfate is ineffective, or it may be that the study wasn't very good. Regardless, MgS04 is still used in most hospitals (often as first choice) for tocolysis. Someone reading this article may be confused by the "ineffective" distinction, given what is going on in practice today without a lengthy discussion on its effectiveness. I think it is best we leave this out of this page as this is not the place for a discussion of MgSO4's effectiveness. Instead that discussion can be placed in the MgSO4 article. I am not familiar with the use of the other "ineffective" drugs listed to warrant changing their descriptive status.

I followed the link for citation 4 and didn't get the right page. I searched the web site and found the article here: — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:36, 26 March 2012 (UTC)

disagree with above. if hospitals are using a medication with demonstrated inefficacy for tocolysis, than practice not definition should change. magnesium has many useful adjuncts in pregnancy -- fetal neuroprotection and preeclampsia seizure prophylaxis. So there is a still a role for its use. If it has not shown to be effective, the practice of magnesium for tocolysis should stop. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Westcoastmd (talkcontribs) 03:40, 27 November 2013 (UTC)
