Mode of action:
Cytolog functions to expel the components of pregnancy
- It ripens and dilates the cervix
- It also enhances uterine contractions initiated by the anti-progesterone
The Cytolog dosage regimen must be followed strictly. Routes of administration may differ. It can be taken both orally and vaginally.
Each tablet contains 200 mcg of misoprostol. The advised dosage is 4 tablets (800 mcg) in 1-2 days after the intake of mifepristone. Place 2 in each of the cheek pouches and allow it to dissolve for about 30 mins. Swallow the remaining contents with water.
Empty your bladder. Ensure that your hands are sanitized and insert the four tablets one by one. Avoid any kind of physical exertion and urinating for at least 30 mins from the time of administration. A vaginal administration is also considered more effective.
Oral administration results in a greater number of gastrointestinal side-effects like nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Vaginal administration leads to greater uterine contractility and thus increased cramping. Bleeding is also an intended symptom. These symptoms should subside post-abortion.
- Persistent cramping
- Dehydration and mineral imbalance
- Menstrual problem or irregularities
- Unusual heavy vaginal bleeding
- Rashes or itching/swelling of the face/tongue
This is not a complete list. Do follow-up with a doctor if you see signs of complications.
