Brief Answer: it is prescription drug Detailed Answer: Hello, Both Mifeprestone and Misoprostol are prescription drugs. They are not available over the counter at the medical store. Also, it is XXXXXXX to use them without consulting a Gynecologist. I suggest you to get it prescribed by a gynecologist, and proceed accordingly. It would be unethical and inappropriate to prescribe you scheduled drugs without doing a proper examination.
