Can I take the abortion pill (Cytotec) while on methadone?

Patient: Can I take the abortion pill (Cytotec) while on methadone?

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query.Self trial of abortion is very dangerous and can lead to complications which can be lif e-threatening. Consider consulting a gynecologist for the abortion and also mention that you are on methadone so that a psychiatric opinion is taken before attempting the abortion to avoid any complications and drug interactions. However, methadone has not known to cause any drug reactions with Cytotec.Hope this helped.Regards
