Carbetocin (Duratocin) is an obstetric drug used to control postpartum hemorrhage, bleeding after giving birth. It is an analogue of oxytocin, and its action is similar to that of oxytocin, such as contraction of the uterus.

Carbetocin is available in Canada and the United Kingdom, but not in the United States.
