Brief Answer: You may continue the same... Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX I am not sure of the reason why Meprate was prescribed to you. From your post I presume you been prescribed for withdrawal bleeding following abortion. If that is the case it does not matter if you have missed 1 tablet. You can continue the medicine as prescribed by the doctor. I suggest my patients to stop it after 5 days and wait for withdrawal bleeding , which might occur in a week's time. Hope this answers your question. If any other query, feel free to ask. I will be happy to help. Thank you...
