On the first day, you have to take three pills (200mg each) of Mifepristone orally. This dose of Mifepristone causes a fertilized egg to be unable to remain attached to the lining of the uterus. After two days gap, the doctor will carry out an exam to see if the pregnancy has terminated. If not, you have to take the second dose of two pills of Misoprostol (200mcg) orally or as a vaginal suppository. This will cause the end of pregnancy from 6 hours to 1 week after. Visit the doctor after 2 weeks i.e. 14 days after taking Misoprostol for confirming the end of pregnancy.
Some common side effects of Mifeprex includes nausea, headache, excessive bleeding, painful cramps, and diarrhea.

Do not use Mifeprex, if you are using anticoagulants (e.g. Warfarin, Heparin) or corticosteroids (e.g. Prednisolone, Dexamethasone). If you have a chronic adrenal failure and an IUCD, then do not take Mifeprex. If you have a pregnancy outside the uterus (ectopic pregnancy), then do not use Mifeprex.
