MISOPROSTOL: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Abortion: “I would like to share my experience with the abortion pill just cause I read so many negative reviews prior to taking it. What I learned is never believe the reviews you see online everyone reacts differently, my experience was very positive I experience very minimal pain and discomfort. I think people who have positive experiences don’t both doing reviews. I recommend getting a prescription for percosets I found that really helped , I took 3 prior to the pill and when it came it just felt like a normal period nothing out of the ordinary or extreme like most people said, also I found a heating pad really helped as well as gaterade to keep hydrated. Moral of the story don’t believe everything you see online cause I was terrified, and everything went very smooth.”

For Abortion: “I have a child, one year old and was almost 8 weeks when I took Milfistone and nearly 35 hrs later took miso 4 tabs under the tongue. First 2 and again after 2 hrs another 2. Less than 5 mins and I feel like I got my period. 30 mins later I can barely sit coz it felt like floodgates opening. Went to the bathroom and out came clots the size of my fist. Never seen so much blood in my life. But I had no severe pains, just a bit of period like pain for 4-5 hrs and within that timeframe all major clots were out and then it’s like a normal period. It’s been 4 days and I feel fine apart from a little weakness. Ultrasound scheduled after 14 days.”

For Abortion: “Hi ladies just to make you all aware. I took the abortion pill on a Tuesday and it started working 3hrs later where I was clotting a bit and a lot of blood, I was in pain for about 3 hours then all settled. The next day I had a bit more clotting, then all was ok. Two days after my abortion I started getting really bad pains and a fever so went to doctors and they told me the abortion was incomplete and I had to go straight to A&E where they just gave me antibotics and went in for the scan. l had an infection so that is why I was in so much pain 3 days after. During this time I was clotting more, it was the most horrible thing I have ever had to go through. So because this complication happened to me I think having the pill abortion really is not safe at all. It made me very ill.”

For Abortion: “I used this in conjunction with mifepristone and 48 hours later took misoprostol by dissolving 4 pills on the inside on my checks. I started at 4 p.m, waited for the pills to dissolve in my mouth for 30 min and swallowed the rest. I experienced nothing and fell asleep on my couch. I woke up drenched in a cold sweat and mild cramps at 6:15, I got up and immediately threw up. My nausea continued throughout my whole ordeal. By 8pm the pain was excruciating, I felt all my lower torso contorting from my belly button to my upper thighs. The best way I can describe this is full term labor contractions. I got dizzy and my husband gave me a hot shower. I lost consciousness for a min or 2. By 10pm, I passed the baby and it was smooth sailing again.”

For Gynecological Conditions: “I found out 5/20/16 that there had been no fetal growth since the 7th week, should of been 8.5, I am high risk of hemorrhaging & wanted to avoid a D&C since it’s extra risky. After 1 week I went to primary Dr an the PA told me 2 go to ER, they did NOTHING! Finally my primary set me up with an ob/gyn, but had to wait 2 more weeks. Then 3 days ago I started clotting & bleeding, this morning just before my ob appt I had a fist size ball of the fetal sac come out * extremely painful* I did take a pic 2 show Dr, after exam she said I had passed about 90% of it, dilated to 1cm, she gave me a rx for 6 200mcg to take, just took 1st 2 about 1/2 hr ago, I’m nervous, but I can’t imagine it will hurt worse then the contractions I had passing what I did this morning.”

For Abortion: “Had to take this medicine because wasn’t able to find heartbeat. It was the worst pain I’ve experienced. My Dr had prescribed me some strong pain killers and it did nothing. I was throwing up and had diarhea. I was so weak nauseous and in such pain. I was freezing and shaking so much. I felt a bit better when i finally went into a hot bath. But then trying not to fall asleep and drown. I Hated every second of it. If had to choose again probably do dnc but I guess it is different for everyone”
