A new oral sustained release formulation of ritodrine was tested for patient tolerance in this open study. The doses tested were 120 mg/day, 240 mg/day, and 360 mg/day. No objective toxicity was seen at any level. Doses of 120 mg/day and 240 mg/day were well-tolerated. Of the subjects who received the 360 mg/day dose, most tolerated it well.
