These drugs have in common the presence of misoprostol, a component that induces uterine contraction, being very useful in these cases. However, if used improperly, it can cause several side effects.
Therefore, learn more about the mechanism of action of misoprostol and what are the risks of using a drug with this drug.
What is misoprostol?
Used in Brazil since 1984, Misoprostol is an important active ingredient for the obstetric area.
Misoprostol is a synthetic active ingredient made in the laboratory from prostaglandin E1 (fatty acid that functions as a hormone in the female body). This substance was developed by the pharmaceutical industry in 1973, but arrived in Brazil only in 1984.
This active ingredient is used in the manufacture of medications such as Prostokos, which is used in different cases of obstetric care, ensuring women’s health.
Thus, misoprostol is indicated for pregnant women who have the need to terminate pregnancy (abortion), or to anticipate delivery, with medical monitoring.
It is important to note that in the case of termination of pregnancy, its use is permitted, according to the legislation in force in the country, in cases of rape, risk to the woman’s health and when it is attested that the child will be born with poor brain formation (anencephaly). Apart from these situations, it is considered a crime and can have serious consequences for women.
