MISOPROSTOL

Information for patients
Drug Information •Misoprostol contain misoprostol which is similar to a chemical substance called ''''prostaglandin'''' which your body produces naturally. Prostaglandins are produced in the stomach and intestine and help to protect the lining. Misoprostol belongs to a group of medicines known as ''''anti-ulcer agents''''. •The Misoprostol may help prevent you getting ulcers in your stomach or the part it empties into, called the duodenum. These ulcers could be caused by taking non-steroidal anti inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like diclofenac and naproxen. The way NSAIDs work means they reduce the amount of prostaglandins in your stomach and intestine. This can cause indigestion and lead to ulcers forming. The Misoprostol will replace these prostaglandins and help to protect your stomach and intestine, so you can continue getting benefit from your NSAID. Misoprostol also reduces acid and increases bicarbonate in your stomach secretions. •Misoprostol can also be used to heal existing ulcers.
