What painkillers can you use?
NSAID's like Ibuprofen, Diclofenac and Naproxen are the most effective painkiller against cramps. If you cannot obtain one of those, Paracetamol also helps.
Please read the patient instructions of the painkillers you obtained to know the maximum doses you can use.
Important! Because the Corona Virus seems to cause more complications and sympthoms with Ibuprofen and Diclofenac, we advice women to only use Paracetamol, Tylenol (Acetaminophen) 1000 mg, or Paracetamol with Codeine for pain management during the Corona Virus pandemic!!
For some women, pain like uterine cramps may be very important, for other not. It is difficult to know how strong it could be for you. As a precaution, we suggest you to take painkillers approximately 1h before the Misoprostol, eating a little bit.
You can take another dose of painkillers 4 hours after the first one.
Do NOT use anti-spasmodics like Buscopan. As the misoprostol makes your uterus contract in order to expell the pregnancy, anti-spasmodics might interfere with the abortion process.
