Methergine Tablets demonstrate significant reduction in post-cesarean blood loss1

Methergine had less hemoglobin (Hb) loss1

Significantly higher postoperative Hb levels in those receiving Methergine (11.2 g/dL vs 10.2 g/dL, P <0.001)

- Methergine (-0.7 g/dL; -5.9%) vs no Methergine
(-1.6 g/dL; -12.7%)1
- 1 g/dL change in Hb (or 3% change in hematocrit) equates to one unit of blood2
- Reduced blood loss may reduce morbidity and speed recovery3-5

None of the Methergine-treated patients experienced any side effects leading to withdrawal from the study1
