In Depth Information on Mefipil Tablet

Expert advice for Mefipil Tablet

  • In case of heavy and prolonged bleeding, or if the expulsion has occurred before you took prostaglandin, you should contact the doctor immediately to ensure complete evacuation.
  • If pregnancy continues or expulsion is incomplete, you will be offered another method for terminating the pregnancy.
  • Do not take mifepristone If  you are allergic (hypersensitive) to the active substance mifepristone or prostaglandin (if required to be taken  together) any of the other ingredients of the medicine.
  • Because mifepristone may pass into breast milk and be taken in by your baby, you should stop in case you were breastfeeding once you have taken the treatment.
