What are the symptoms of an allergic reaction to the medication?
An allergic reaction can cause different symptoms, from mild to severe.
A mild local reaction can be experienced as itching, small blisters or pain in or around your mouth. This will disappear by itself sometime after the medicines are dissolved.
In a mild general allergic reaction, you can get tingling hands, nose congestion and swollen eyes, a rash, and itching of your skin. It is best not to continue taking Misoprostol if you have this reaction. You can use a medicine called antihistamines (for example promethazine and clemastine) to treat these symptoms.
In very rare cases of a severe allergic reaction, you can start feeling pressure on your chest, dizziness, swelling of the face, shortage of breath and collapse. If you have these symptoms, go to a hospital or medical center immediately.
