Misoprostol helps lowering the risk of bleeding from ulcers by protecting the stomach lining by decreasing the amount of acid that comes in contact with it. Other uses of this drug are not authorized, therefore these usages should only be considered if they are prescribed by a professional. The most known use of Cytotec tablet is that it is used with other drugs to end an early pregnancy.
Other advantages are that it helps in preventing stomach ulcers especially if you have a medical history of contracting them by antibiotics such as aspirin and ibuprofen. One such use of it is for assisting childbirth, as misoprostol (especially when used vaginally) causes contractions in the womb, therefore it helps in labor induction and cervical ripening. It is also said to be useful in treating excessive bleeding after delivery.
