Cytotec is a synthetic prostaglandin drug which helps to prevent gastric ulcers in people who are taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. It is used to protect the stomach lining and reduce the production of acid secretion.
Use of Cytotec
People who use asprin and other NSAID’s to control the pain and inflammation of arthritis may experience stomach problems. Cytotec is used to relieve the pain and inflammation of stomach ulcers caused by prolong use of NSAID’s.
Precautions before using Cytotec
- Do not take Cytotec if you are or might become pregnant.
- Do not use if you have heart problems.
- Do not use if you are allergic to prostaglandin drugs.
- Do not use if you are breastfeeding.
Because Cytotec can cause miscarriage, sometimes leading to the mother’s death, it should not be taken during pregnancy. If you are a woman of childbearing age, do not take Cytotec unless you have thoroughly discussed the risks with your doctor.
How to take Cytotec
Cytotec is to be taken with meals exactly as prescribed by your doctor. It is taken 4 times a day and with the last dose taken at bedtime. Do not take more or less as it can be risky to your health. For the best results, take Cytotec for the full course of NSAID treatment.
What do I do if I miss a dose?
Take your medicine as soon as you remember. If it is time for your next dose then skip your missed one and go on with your regular schedule. Do not double the dose. Consult your doctor before stopping the dose.
