Hello XXXXXXX,
Thanks for posting your query.
The number one gold standard advise is that these are prescription medicines and should be taken under a gynecologist's supervision.
The Mifepristone is taken stat. and the Misoprostol 2tablets taken at 24-36 hours and another 2 Misoprostol 8hours later.
There is no special precautions or dietary restrictions for these drugs.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have any follow up queries or doubts, you can forward them for me, and I shall be glad to help you.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
