Frequently asked Questions about Prestakind

Question over 5 years ago

How does Prestakind work?

Dr. Suhas Bhargav MBBS , General Physician

Prestakind contains misoprostol which is a prostaglandin E1 (PGE1) analogue that possesses antisecretory property that inhibits gastric acid secretion. NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) inhibits the synthesis of prostaglandins which leads to diminishing bicarbonate and mucus secretion which contributes to ulceration. Prestakind has mucosal protective properties that protect the stomach tissues from the damage caused by the stomach acid through decreased acid secretion and mucosal protective action. It induces labour by causing relaxation of cervix uteri (which is the lower part of the uterus). In the treatment of postpartum hemorrhage Prestakind works by causing contractions of smooth muscle fibres of the myometrium (middle layer of the uterine wall).

Question almost 5 years ago

Does Prestakind cause bleeding?

Dr. Uday Nath Sahoo MBBS , Internal Medicine

Yes, Prestakind causes bleeding this occurs due to the expelling the tissues of the fetus from the uterus. But if you observe that the heavy bleeding is continuing for more than 2 hours or usage of a sanitary napkin is more than 2 pads every hour, then this situation warrants immediate hospitalization to recover from blood loss. In case of incomplete or unsuccessful abortion, you may require surgical procedures. The heavy bleeding can be due to uterine rupture. However, this is a rare situation which occurs only in very few cases.
