Thanks for writing to us

Yes duvadilan is safe in pregnancy. It contains isoxsuprine hydrochloride which prevents premature labour pains

It is always advisable to take it while travelling during pregnancy

Best wishes
Take care

Thank you doctor. One quick question. Should I take this pro-actively before the travel dates or take it only if I experience pain or contractions
Answered by Dr. Minoo Bhagia 14 hours later

You should take it before travel dates so that your body gets used to the new drug rather than trying while travelling
