Treatment SummaryMisoprostol is a medication used to reduce the risk of ulcers caused by taking certain types of NSAID drugs. It can also be used to manage miscarriages, prevent post-partum bleeding, and terminate early pregnancies.

Effectiveness

How Arthrotec Affects PatientsMisoprostol is a medication that helps protect the stomach from ulcers caused by taking NSAIDs. It can also help manage miscarriages and can be used on its own or with another drug, mifepristone, to terminate a pregnancy in the early stages. Depending on the method of administration, it may take 8-100 minutes to take effect, and its effects last for 2-4 hours.
How Arthrotec works in the bodyMisoprostol is a medication that reduces stomach acid, increases mucus and bicarbonate secretion, and thickens the protective layer of the stomach. It also makes contractions in the uterus stronger and more frequent, while loosening the neck of the uterus.

Arthrotec Toxicity & Overdose RiskThe toxic dose of misoprostol in rats is 81mg/kg and 27mg/kg in mice. Overdosing on misoprostol can lead to drowsiness, shaking, seizures, difficulty breathing, stomach pain, diarrhea, fever, heart palpitations, low blood pressure, and slow heartbeat. Dialysis is not likely to help, but activated charcoal taken by mouth may reduce absorption. To treat an overdose, supportive care should be provided which may include removing undissolved tablets, fluids, pain relievers, and other medications depending on the symptoms.

Arthrotec for Osteoarthritis and High Risk of Developing Gastric Ulcers
I've been taking this medication for four days now and I'm already seeing a lot of improvement. I used to take ibuprofen for my arthritis pain, but this Arthrotec 50 is much better. I don't have any pain in my hands, back, etc., and I can finally sleep through the night.

Arthrotec for Osteoarthritis and High Risk of Developing Gastric Ulcers
Aethrotec 50 was prescribed to me by my doctor to help with the pain while I waited for hip replacements. It's the only thing that's helped and it's been a miracle. I don't need surgery anymore and I can live again thanks to this medication. The downside is that it's hard on my stomach and bowels, but it's worth it!

This drug has been really effective for me and it's allowed me to do things that I haven't been able to do in years, like walk long distances. I don't have any side effects from it which is great. I've been using it for 6-8 months now and hopefully it will continue to be effective.

Arthrotec for Osteoarthritis and High Risk of Developing Gastric Ulcers
I had to stop taking opioids because my GP wasn't willing to prescribe them. I've got general osteoarthritis and this treatment (Arthrotec 50mg) has worked great for me with few side effects. I only take it 5x per week because I don't want to constantly monitor my blood levels. Highly recommended!

Patient Q&A Section about arthrotec

These questions and answers are submitted by anonymous patients, and have not been verified by our internal team.

Can Arthrotec be used for body pain?

"Arthrotec contains diclofenac, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug, and misoprostol. The diclofenac in Arthrotec works by reducing substances in the body that cause pain and inflammation. Arthrotec is taken once or twice daily."

Answered by AI

Is Arthrotec the same as diclofenac?

"It helps to protect the stomach lining from the effects of diclofenac.

Arthrotec is a combination of diclofenac and misoprostol. Diclofenac is an NSAID, which blocks the production of chemicals that cause pain and inflammation. Misoprostol is a prostaglandin E1 analog, which helps protect the stomach lining from the effects of diclofenac."

Answered by AI

Is Arthrotec the same as ibuprofen?

"The drugs Arthrotec and ibuprofen both contain a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). Arthrotec also contains a prostaglandin that protects the stomach from the irritating effects of NSAIDs. Ibuprofen is available under brand names such as Advil and Motrin, and also as a generic drug."

Answered by AI

What is Arthrotec used for?

"Arthrotec 75 is a non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drug that is effective in treating the signs and symptoms of arthritic conditions. Diclofenac, an active ingredient in Arthrotec 75, is responsible for the drug's anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties."
