How Should Misoprostol Be Taken Before A Hysteroscopy?

Hello, I had gastric bypass surgery one year ago and tomorrow I'm having a hystoscopy (sorry for the spelling) and tonight I have to take one 200mcg tablet of misoprostol and I wanted to know if my pouch can handle this or should it be taken vaginally?

Hi,

It is really really absorbed. It should be taken as directed at the time recommended but route isn't all that important but absorption will be rapid and complete even without a stomach.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
