After you take the mifepristone 600mg you should bleed within 24 hrs.
Then you have to take 2 tabs of misoprostol 48hrs after taking the mifepristone.
Even though you bleed and get cramps complete the full dose of the medicine.
If the medication is taken incorrectly,there may be remnants of pregnancy inside the uterus which will require surgical intervention.

You are over the time limit.Since its been over 48 hrs after taking mifepristone, so you have taken the misoprostol already.I cannot guarantee that the complete process will be successful. But you can definitely hope for the best.Take 200mg misoprostol 2 tablets together (each tab is 200mg) as soon as possible. Take both tabs together.

How to take misoprostol tablets ,orally or vaginally? and if orally should i swallow it or keep in mouth for 20-30 min before swallowing it? and is dose of 2 tabs is sufficient in my case ?
Answered by Dr. Rhea Chanda 3 minutes later
You taken them orally.Swallow them and dont keep them in your mouth.That the XXXXXXX dose you can take. Taking higher dose may be harmful to you.So regardless of your condition,take the dose suggested only.You should get proper bleeding and may be with passage of clots.Bleeding will continue 7-10 days.If longer,see your doctor for an ultrasound.
