Global Oxytocic Pharmaceuticals Market: Overview
Dubbed the “love hormone,” oxytocin is a female reproductive hormone, produced in the hypothalamus and released into bloodstream during childbirth. This hormone induces labor and milk production in a lactating mother. Oxytocic drugs can be used as uterotonic for induced labor and to reduce the chances of hemorrhage post C-section. Besides this, oxytocic drugs are also administered in conditions such as post-mature birth; uterine atony; pre-eclampsia, which means hypertension during pregnancy; stillbirth; postpartum hemorrhage; and as an adjunct therapy for treatment of autism and in cases of incomplete abortion.
Apart from being administered to humans, oxytocic drugs are also used as veterinary medications. Oxytocin demonstrates its effect after delivery, during childbirth, and toward the end stage of pregnancy.
