I took this med after an incomplete abortion, for "retained products". Anyway, I took it for 3 days and on the 4th and 5th day I had severe and debilitating cramps. I even went to the ER for the pain, and I've never been to the ER in my adult life for anything, that's how bad the pain was. If I knew it was going to be that bad, I would never have taken this pill. I was on the couch in horrible pain for 72 hrs!!! I couldn't get more than 4 hrs of sleep at any given time because I would wake up in pain. Motrin, Vicodin, and Tylenol was hardly effective in controling the pain. As far as it being effective, I guess it did what it was suppose to do, but I sure paid the price with pain! In short, if I would've know....I would not have taken this drug and would've opted for the D and C instead. I don't even know if that kind of pain is typical or not, haven't been able to find out that information online, and I haven't been able to get a straight answer from any healtcare provider. If you take this med, be prepared for pain and heavy bleeding (if taken for similar reason). I would do it when you can plan to take time off work, etc. It was a rough go for me and would never do it again!!!!

Although this medication was effective for controlling/preventing postpartum hemorrhage, I had a very weird reaction to it. After the intramuscular injection in the hospital I felt very strange. Almost as if I was out of my body. Difficult to explain but I very much did not feel like myself at all. I chalked it up though to just the excitement and exhaustion after giving birth. About 6 to 8 hours later I finally felt "normal" again. Two weeks later I began to experience some gushing bleeding so I was prescribed some Methergine tablets. After the first tablet I had the same bizarre feelings. I could not wait for it to get out of my body so I could feel back to myself again. Twenty years earlier I had taken this same medication for some postpartum bleeding and had no side effects whatsoever at that time. After this last time and my freaky reaction I will not ever take this drug again unless my life depended on it.

This medicine doesn't seem to work well at all. Bleeding like a stuck pig for two days. Cramping was bad, and these don't seem very effective at all.

It has slowed my bleeding down but it made my heart race. I also had very severe cramps.

Just finished the pills & so far the bleeding has slowed down, but I've been bleeding for 36 days now & I really wish it would just stop.....But the cramps were mild....
