YES! It is about time. My OB suggested that I take this junk when talking about induction, and I asked her if it was FDA-approved for induction yet. She said it wasn't, but that all kinds of drugs are routinely used for things that the FDA has not approved. Like that was supposed to make me feel better about it?!

FDA approved use doesn't impress me much. I mean have you seen the commercials for a certain allergy medication, for example, that claims they are the only one "FDA approved" for both indoor and outdoor allergies. As if the other ones that have only been approved for indoor, but help you with outdoor too, shouldn't be used for your "outdoor" allergies. I don't know, it doesn't matter to me personally. Many drugs have other uses besides what they are FDA approved for. I want my doctors to be able to use drugs for off-label uses. What does matter to me is that the benefits outweigh the risks and that patients are made aware of the risks. Which has been the problem with Cytotec IMO. Doctors use it without telling women the real risks of the drug.
