Dinoprostone Dosage

General Information on Receiving Dinoprostone

Some considerations to keep in mind during treatment with dinoprostone include the following:
 
  • Dinoprostone comes in different forms; however, all forms are inserted into the vagina.
 
  • It should only be administered by a trained healthcare provider in a healthcare setting that can provide emergency services if needed.
 
  • You will be lying down when dinoprostone is inserted, and will need to remain lying down for 10 minutes to two hours (depending on the particular product used) after the medicine is placed. This helps prevent it from leaking out.
 
  • Dinoprostone vaginal insert will be removed by your healthcare provider when it is no longer needed. The other forms will not need to be removed.
 
  • For dinoprostone to work properly, it must be used as prescribed.
 
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your dose or dinoprostone dosing in general, please talk to your healthcare provider or pharmacist.
