Cytotec is a white round pill made up of misoprostol which is a gastrointestinal agent. This medication can be purchased in 200mcg strength, sold as the brand name Cytotec.

Cytotec is most commonly used for protecting your stomach from damage (like ulcers) that can be caused by common nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID). These drugs include aspirin, ibuprofen (Advil), naproxen (Aleve), and others. In other cases, doctors will prescribe Cytotec with another medication to end a pregnancy (abortion).

Misoprostol works by lining the reducing the amount of acid that comes into contact with your stomach.

What is Cytotec?

Cytotec is a brand-name prescription medication; it comes as an oral tablet in two strengths; at My Drug Center, we carry the stronger strength; 200mcg. Each tablet contains the active ingredient misoprostol.


What is Misoprostol?

Misoprostol is a water-soluble liquid that is thick and sticky before being compressed into tablets and sold as Cytotec. The drug misoprostol is a man-made form of prostaglandin; a naturally produced hormone in humans that helps control certain body functions. Misoprostol is a endocrine-metabolic agent.


What is Cytotec used for?

Cytotec is used for patients with an elevated risk of ulcers as a result of NSAID (anti-inflammatory nonsteroidal drug) treatment; using Cytotec will help reduce this risk. It may also help treat any currently existing ulcers. NSAID’s (such as diclofenac and naproxen) are commonly prescribed as a treatment for inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, bursitis, or tendonitis.


How does Misoprostol work?

NSAID’s are thought to prevent the stomach from producing prostaglandin; prostaglandins produced in the stomach are thought to help protect the stomachs inner lining from ulcer-causing effects of NSAIDs. Therefore, the stomach lining has little to no protection against the formation of ulcers in those who use NSAID’s as a treatment. Misoprostol is effective at reducing the risk of ulcers because it replicates the actions of the missing prostaglandin, which protects against the harmful effects of NSAIDs. In order for this medication to be effective, you must know how to use Cytotec properly; ensure you follow your doctor’s directions carefully.


How long does it take for Cytotec to work?

The peak concentration of the drug typically begins within 30 minutes of taking an oral tablet; therefore, it shouldn’t take very long before the medication begins working. Speak with your health care professional if you have any further questions.


Where can I buy Misoprostol?

How to take Misoprostol?

You should follow all directions given to you by your doctor; it is important to follow your doctor’s steps on how to use Cytotec very carefully. Otherwise, Cytotec is typically taken every 6 hours with food; 100-200mcg four (4) times per day, depending on tolerability. The last dose of the day is commonly taken at bedtime.  If you are still unsure how to use Cytotec pills; speak with your doctor before starting treatment.


How long does Misoprostol stay in your system?

Misoprostol has a half life of about 20-40 hours; the amount of time it takes for the drug to clear the system can be calculated by multiplying the half-life by 5. Therefore, based off the approximate half-life, it will take roughly 100-200 hours, roughly 4-9 days, to clear out of the system.
