Cytotec 200 mcg (Misoprostol) Tablets


Cytotec 200 mcg, also known as Misoprostol is an oral medication used to prevent NSAID (Nonsteroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs) -associated gastric ulcers and cause an early abortion in women in their first-trimester pregnancy. It is used in combination with Mifepristone (also known as RU-486) for the termination of pregnancy in women who are no more than nine weeks pregnant. It increases the contractions (by opening the cervix) caused by Mifepristone to empty the uterus and avoid surgical intervention. For the treatment of gastric ulcers, it works by lowering the amount of acid to protect the lining of the stomach. For the termination of pregnancy, four tablets are given to you by the doctor which is needed to be taken either orally or vaginally. The abortion process gets completed within 3-4 days. It can take anywhere around 3 months to reduce the risk of gastric ulcers provided that the doctor’s prescription is followed.
