Did your doctor explain why they started you on it? There are a few things it can help do, but it's not often you hear of someone using it for a low lying placenta. Mine was also low lying (found it at my 20 week appointment - had no bleeding or problems) and wasn't put on anything. In almost all cases the placenta will move up and no longer be a concern. Is your doctor doing another ultrasound in a few weeks to check on it?
