This drug comes with an information leaflet. You should read it and discuss your concerns with your healthcare provider before commencing treatment. However, ensure you tell your doctor if you are allergic to the active ingredient in the drug. Also, inform your doctor if you have a history of:
- Inflammatory bowel disorder
- Any other stomach/intestinal disorders
- Heart diseases
- Kidney disorder
You have to cut down on your alcohol intake while using Cytotec to reduce the chances of stomach bleeding. Also, daily use of tobacco while on Cytotec can predispose you to gastric hemorrhage.
This drug should not be taken by a pregnant woman. Inform your doctor if you are pregnant or planning to get pregnant. You should also inform your doctor if you are breastfeeding as Cytotec can pass through breast milk.
How Does Cytotec Work?
Misoprostol is a synthetic analogue of Prostaglandin. In ulcer treatment or management, it inhibits both nocturnal and basal secretion of gastric acid. In pregnancy termination, it acts by depriving the fetus/zygote of progesterone which is necessary for pregnancy to progress. As a result, the uterus contracts, leading to the expulsion of the pregnancy.
How to Use Cytotec?
You should consume Cytotec orally with enough water and usually after meals. It is best to take it at bedtime to help limit your chances of having diarrhea. Your doctor will prescribe an appropriate dose based on the health condition.
For treatment of stomach ulcers, you should consume it 4 times daily. If you want to abort a pregnancy (Medically Induced Abortion), your doctor will guide you on how to go about it.
For induction of labor in term pregnancy, a doctor or healthcare personnel will insert the drug into the vagina.
Cytotec Dosing Information
The approved dosage for preventing NSAID-induced ulcers is 200 micrograms with food, four times daily. The duration should be the same as the NSAIDS therapy.
People with renal impairment or those who cannot tolerate the 200 mcg doses can have suitable dosage adjustments from their doctors. Generally, a dose of 100 micrograms is given to those who cannot tolerate 200 mcg.
Side Effects of Cytotec
The common side effects patients encounter while taking Cytotec pills are nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Diarrhea usually occurs after two weeks of taking this drug and may last for up to one week. Severe diarrhea can lead to dehydration and loss of essential minerals. Therefore, it is important to replenish lost fluid and minerals.
Other side effects that may occur include:
- Electrolytes imbalance
- Menstrual problems/irregularities
- Mood/mental changes
- Muscle weakness
- Unusually heavy vaginal bleeding
- Stomach pain

You should seek medical help immediately if you observe rashes, hives, swelling around your facials, or difficulty in breathing.
You will be doing yourself more harm if you consume extra doses of Cytotec to make up for any missed doses. It is better to skip the dose and wait for your next one. However, ensure you inform your doctor about such incidents. You can also keep a calendar or reminder to prevent future occurrences of a missed dose.
If you suspect an overdose of Cytotec or accidental poisoning, call 911 or the poison control center in your area. Severe drowsiness, seizures, and slower or irregular heartbeats are usually associated with an overdose of Cytotec.
