What is Cytotec used for?

Cytotec is the used for the treatment and primary prevention of gastroduodenal ulcers caused by arthritis and pain medications called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS). Gastroduodenal ulcer refers to the damage either in the stomach or in the duodenum (small portion of intestine that is immediately adjacent to the stomach). Cytotec (Misoprostol) is similar to a chemical substance in the body called as “prostaglandin” which are produced naturally in the stomach and intestine. The Cytotec tablets may help prevent you getting ulcers in your stomach or duodenum. Cytotec replaces the prostaglandins decreased by the intake of NSAIDS and help to protect the mucosal lining of the stomach and intestine. It also reduces the acid and increases bicarbonate secretions in your stomach. This medication can also be used to heal existing ulcers. Cytotec is also used to start labor, cause an abortion and treat postpartum bleeding due to poor contraction of the uterus. This medication is used by itself and with mifepristone or methotrexate for abortions. Take Cytotec exactly as prescribed by your doctor. You should take this medication with food or milk.

What Are The Possible Side Effects of Cytotec?

Some of the common side effects of Cytotec include skin rashes, diarrhea, dizziness, headache, stomach pain, constipation, wind, indigestion, feeling or being sick, fever, cramping, irregular periods, and severe pain in the uterus. Some of the serious side effects of this medication include angioedema (swelling of the face, lips, tongue or throat), difficulty in breathing, swelling of extremities, prolonged heavy or painful bleeding, abnormal contractions of the uterus and birth defects. If you become pregnant during treatment, stop taking Cytotec immediately and seek medical advice. Diarrhea is the most common problem and can be severe occasionally. You have lesser chances of getting diarrhea if the medication is taken with food. If you use antacids, to reduce acid in your stomach, you should avoid antacids containing magnesium as these could make your diarrhea worse. These are not all the possible side effects of Cytotec. In case of any unexpected effect, consult your healthcare professional immediately.
