Mifeprex Drug Description
MIFEPREX®
(mifepristone) Tablets, 200 mg
For Oral Administration Only


Serious and sometimes fatal infections and bleeding occur very rarely following
spontaneous, surgical, and medical abortions, including following Mifeprex*
use. No causal relationship between the use of Mifeprex and misoprostol and
these events has been established. Before prescribing Mifeprex, inform the
patient about the risk of these serious events and discuss the MEDICATION
GUIDE and the PATIENT AGREEMENT. Ensure that the patient knows
whom to call and what to do, including going to an Emergency Room if none
of the provided contacts are reachable, if she experiences sustained fever,
severe abdominal pain, prolonged heavy bleeding, or syncope, or if she experiences
abdominal pain or discomfort or general malaise (including weakness, nausea,
vomiting or diarrhea) more than 24 hours after taking misoprostol.

Atypical Presentation of Infection. Patients with serious bacterial infections
(e.g. Clostridium sordellii) and sepsis can present without
fever, bacteremia or significant findings on pelvic examination following
an abortion. Very rarely, deaths have been reported in patients who presented
without fever, with or without abdominal pain, but with leukocytosis with
a marked left shift, tachycardia, hemoconcentration, and general malaise.
A high index of suspicion is needed to rule out serious infection and sepsis
(see WARNINGS).
Bleeding. Prolonged heavy bleeding may be a sign of incomplete abortion
or other complications and prompt medical or surgical intervention may be
needed. Advise patients to seek immediate medical attention if they experience
prolonged heavy vaginal bleeding (see WARNINGS).

Patients should be advised to take their MEDICATION
GUIDE with them if they visit an emergency room or another health
care provider who did not prescribe Mifeprex, so that provider will be aware
that the patient is undergoing a medical abortion.
