Brief Answer: No use of duadilan at 38 weeks Detailed Answer: Hi, Thank you for choosing XXXXXXX You can stop the medication, there is no use to take this tocolytic medicine after 38 weeks. This drug is given for preterm pains, as you have already crossed 37weeks I dont recommend to take this medication.
