 5  abortion I had ordered cytotec from for termination of unwanted pregnancy. It is highly effective for termination of unwanted pregnancy. F 25

 4  Managed miscarriage I had a good experience with this drug (as in it induced my labor and did its job), however I believe if your body isn't capable of "aborting" all tissue, no matter if you take this or not, it won't. My body didn't and lead to serious complications NOT related to this medicine. The only actual side effects I had from taking this, was miscarriage symptoms. Cramping and bleeding. Diarrhea and nausea is also common but didn't happen for me. This med did what it was supposed to do for me. I recommend getting a string pain reliever (ie: hydrocodone)with it because cramping does get very Intense atop an already emotionally painful situation. F 26 1 days

 1  Labor induction Placental abruption, uterine rupture During labor, they gave me this stuff to induce me. They gave me quite a bit, did not inform me of the risks, or anything. I ended up with an emergency c-section due to placental abruption and uterine rupture caused by the drug and ended up with my daughter in the NICU. F 27 1 days

 5  miscarriage management blighted ovum Complete evacuation, like a natural miscarriage. With correct dosages this works in up to 95% of first trimester miscarriages. I was afraid to have a D&C because my friend got Asherman's syndrome from one. She recommended this instead. My doctor gave me both options and I chose cytotec. I would recommend Cytotec to anyone who is interested in preserving their fertility. F 37 1 days

 2  Fibromagelia & pinched cspine nerve Blew up like a balloon, elephantitus looking legs & ankles. Finger circulation cut off by rings...terrible reaction! It took about a week to come down from the swelling. My ankles hurt so bad & were so swollen, wow...nasty reaction for me! F 44 1 days
 1  medically managed miscarriage Horrible cramping that extended down my legs. Did not effectively complete my miscarriage. This drug was recommended to me as the least invasive way to complete my miscarriage (embryo 2 weeks behind in development with no cardiac activity). The doctor did not mention that it is often not effective in one dose (or even after two doses, though I doubt I could have convinced myself to take it again). I returned for a follow up visit a week later and learned that the miscarriage was still not complete, and had to schedule a D&C anyway. I would definitely recommend the D&C over this drug any day.

CYTOTEC  (MISOPROSTOL):  This medication is used to prevent stomach ulcers while you take NSAIDs (e.g., aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen), especially if you are at risk for developing ulcers or have a history of ulcers. Misoprostol helps to decrease your risk of serious ulcer complications such as bleeding. This medication protects your stomach lining by lowering the amount of acid that comes in contact with it. This medication is also used in combination with another drug (mifepristone) to end a pregnancy (abortion).   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
