Brief Answer: need more details Detailed Answer: Hello, How did you take the medicine - orally or vaginally? How many tablet of 200mcg have you taken? Did you take any other medicine along with this as well? Did the doctor prescribe you this? When was the date of your last menstrual period? It will take some time for you to start bleeding. Please wait for some time more. Please get back to me with the details. Regards,

Brief Answer: wait for 24 hours after taking the drug Detailed Answer: Hello, Please wait for 24 hours after taking the first dose of Zytotec. Within this 24 hr period, you should start bleeding. I also prescribe my patients oral Mifeprestone tablet along with zytotec. You may ask your treating doctor to prescribe you this as well. If you have already taken 2 pills of Zytotec, there is no need to take again now. Please wait for 24 hrs at least. Hope this helps you.
