Taking misoprostol (Cytotec®) four times daily can help prevent stomach ulcers from forming in certain people who take nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). This drug is specifically used in people who are at risk for developing an ulcer or have had an ulcer in the past.
 
Misoprostol works by reducing stomach acid secretion and protecting the lining of the stomach.
