You have taken almost 800 micrograms of the dose which is higher than normal.

Have you taken only misoprostol or any other tablet which is mifeprine.

Diarrhoea will subside , drink electrolytes with lot of water.

Do not worry about less bleeding.

Repeat urine test after 15 days or get an ultrasound done.

Best wishes
