DRUG INTERACTIONS: Carboprost should not be administered with oxytocin (Pitocin) because both medications work similarly. Oxytocin also induces contractions during labor; therefore, use of both medications is not recommended.
PREGNANCY: It should be used only for termination of pregnancy and to treat hemorrhage after delivery.
NURSING MOTHERS: It is not known whether carboprost is excreted in breast milk.
REFERENCE: FDA Prescribing Information.
