Cytotec (Misoprostol) is a drug belonging to the Prostaglandin class of drugs. It is used to inhibit stomach ulcers brought about by the use of anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen, naproxen or aspirin. Cytotec works by lowering the amount of acid released by the stomach. It shields the stomach's lining, thereby reducing the risk of stomach ulcers.
