Cytotec & induction of labor

  1. 0 I'm interested to know if induction of labor is a common practice in other countries and if so is the drug cytotec used? What is your experience with this drug? Is it safe? I would appreciate any information you may have.

    Yes, the generic name for Cytotec is
    Misoprostol. It's actually a medication which is prescribed for gastrointestinal problems but a side effect of the drug is
    abortion. That is how it came to be discovered for use in induction of labor.
