CARBOPROST

Information for patients
Drug Information Therapeutic group* Carboprost belongs to a group of medicines called prostaglandins.Prostaglandins are produced naturally in your body and are very important for a variety of activities, including childbirth. After childbirth they make the womb contract and to help it stay contracted, which stops heavy bleeding from the womb. Carboprost given after childbirth increases the contraction of your womb which helps to control bleeding after delivery. Therapeutic indications •Carboprost is a sterile solution for injection. It is available in ampoules and contains 250mcg of the active ingredient, carboprost, per ml of solution. •Carboprost is used to stop excessive bleeding in women who have just given birth, when bleeding is due to the womb failing to return to its normal size. *A therapeutic group is one in which a drug is classified depending on its actions and the part(s) of the body it affects
