Background

A description of the experience

Misoprostol is a medication used to start labor, induce abortions, prevent and treat stomach ulcers, and treat postpartum bleeding due to insufficient contraction of the uterus. For abortions it is used with mifepristone or methotrexate. It is a synthetic prostaglandin E1 (PGE1).

Common side effects include diarrhea and abdominal pain. It is pregnancy category X meaning that it is known to result in negative fetal outcomes if taken during pregnancy. Uterine rupture may occur.

Misoprostol is approved for use in the prevention of NSAID-induced gastric ulcers. It acts upon gastric parietal cells, inhibiting the secretion of gastric acid by G-protein coupled receptor-mediated inhibition of adenylate cyclase, which leads to decreased intracellular cyclic AMP levels and decreased proton pump activity at the apical surface of the parietal cell. Misoprostol is only used by people who are both taking NSAIDs and are at high risk for NSAID-induced ulcers. Misoprostol is sometimes coprescribed with NSAIDs to prevent their common adverse effect of gastric ulceration (e.g. with diclofenac in Arthrotec).
