    I was prescribed this drug for a completely different reason than nearly everyone else here, so I thought I would post. I had part of my colon removed due to obstructive kinks that caused tissue to die, which caused daily pain and abnormal stool (mucus or hard-to-pass mush). As a result of that surgery, my intestines have slowed down considerably. I go a week sometimes with no bowel movement. Doct ... Show Full Comment

As I have Crohns disease I can take no NSAIDS so I was on my own. As I was nauseous I inserted the second pill the night before as my Dr had suggested with this side effect. I was miserable by the time of the biopsy--pain was exacerbated an ... Show Full Comment

    I had a miscarriage, but my levels were so high my body wasn't taking care of it on it's own so I tried the cytotec. I did two tabs vaginally and had cramping, so at 5 hours I took the second dose, I started bleeding and this causes the second dose to not absorb. The next day they had me do a third dose with the same outcome (pills didn't absorb). So they had me do a fourth dose of 4 p ... Show Full Comment

    I took this med before a uterin biopsy. It gave me terrible heartburn! I take meds for my stomach anyway. They don't always work real well. Thank God I only had to take 2 pills. I don't t see how they can be prescribed for ulcers and other stomach troubles. Hope I never have to take them again. I did take them with food .
