What is Misoprostol

Misoprostol
Tablets
Misoprostol oral tablets contain either 100 mcg or 200 mcg of Misoprostol, a synthetic prostaglandin E1 analog. Misoprostol has both antisecretory (inhibiting gastric acid secretion) and (in animals) mucosal protective properties.
Misoprostol is indicated for reducing the risk of NSAID (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, including aspirin)–induced gastric ulcers in patients at high risk of complications from gastric ulcer, eg, the elderly and patients with concomitant debilitating disease, as well as patients at high risk of developing gastric ulceration, such as patients with a history of ulcer. Misoprostol has not been shown to reduce the risk of duodenal ulcers in patients taking NSAIDs. Misoprostol should be taken for the duration of NSAID therapy. Misoprostol has been shown to reduce the risk of gastric ulcers in controlled studies of 3 months' duration. It had no effect, compared to placebo, on gastrointestinal pain or discomfort associated with NSAID use.
