If I were in your shoes and my oB offered a scrip for cytotec after the delivery I'd take him up on it and save it for if I was showing signs of shock and severe blood loss. Not as a preventative, but if things got bad quickly and we were waiting for an ambulance.
I would definitely get the rx and have it filled and on hand. I am not a medical professional but I had a PPH after DS and it was terrifying. I will be leaving the hospital with my rx in hand (my OB and I have already talked about it). Like PP said, it should slow things down to get you to the hospital.
