Thanks for your query.
Firstly, our OB must have confirmed the pregnancy, and then given the recommended dose.
Please take the medication as per the prescription, and then proceed ahead as advised.
Misoprostol is the drug of choice for termination of pregnancy, and as the pregnancy is 11 weeks plus, the dosage would be higher.
All the best.
