Protect yourself and others. Act now to help the FDA research and restrict Cytotec from being used for labor induction.

The FDA has issued warnings about the drug, but to place even stronger restrictions on Cytotec, the agency needs more data. Adverse events data on Cytotec is severely limited because doctors are not required to report negative outcomes from off-label uses of drugs. That is why we issued a Citizen Petition to the FDA requesting that the agency conduct a study of the drug using their Sentinel System, which will allow them to pull relevant data from more than 2 million patient records. For more information about our petition, see our “FDA Petitions” page.

If the FDA accepts our petition, they will have the information they need to help put a stop to the use of Cytotec for labor induction.

Help women and their babies avoid exposure to the dangers of Cytotec. Submit a comment in support of our petition.
