Reporting Cytotec Induction to the FDA

I wrote a post on the dangers of Cytotec last week and sitrred up some conversation on this topic on a mommy board that I have been a part of since I was pregnant with Graham. One of the moms, Margaret, was induced with Cytotec and didn’t know anything about it at the time and had a pretty terrifying delivery as a result of it. Both mom and baby were fine but in the months after her daughter’s birth, she began to learn more about Cytotec and the dangers of it and she was understandably outraged by what she found. She sent me this link . It is the FDA’s MedWatch Online Voluntary Reporting Form. If you were induced with Cytotec, you can report the information here and hopefully raise the awareness of it’s dangers by demanding action from the FDA. To read more about it, please go to The Tatia Oden French Memorial Foundation. Tatia and her baby Zorah died as a result of an amniotic embolism caused by an overstimulated uterus induced with Cytotec. It’s a sad story but one that needs to be told so that more women become of aware of the dangers of this drug. Please pass this information on to anyone you know that was induced with Cytotec or to any women you know that are pregnant.
