Ondansetron Pharmaceutical Information

Drug Information: Ondansetron is known as a 5HT3 receptor antagonist. This medicine is prescribed to prevent you from feeling sick. Ondansetron works by blocking the action of a natural chemical in the body called serotonin. Also called serotonin 5HT.

Chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or surgery can increase the amount of serotonin secreted by the body. There are small receptors in the small intestine and brain called the 5HT3 receptor. Serotonin acts on these receptors and makes you feel sick. By blocking serotonin, ondansetron blocks its effect on 5HT3 receptors and eliminates the feeling of sickness and nausea.

 

Contraindications to the use of ondansetron

  • Note the expiration date of ondansetron and do not take it if it has expired.
  • Never give ondansetron to anyone else, even if you have the same symptoms.
  • Do not take more than the dose of ondansetron prescribed by your doctor.
  • Check for ondansetron drug interactions and be sure to tell your doctor what other medications you are taking.

 

Ondansetron drug interaction

Drug interactions may alter drug performance and increase the risk of serious side effects. Make a list of all the medicines (including prescription / over-the-counter medicines and herbal medicines (especially tramadol)) you use and share them with your doctor and pharmacist. Do not change the dose of your medicine without consulting your doctor or stop taking the medicine.

Do not use ondansetron in combination with apomorphine, as these two drugs have serious drug interactions. If you are currently taking apomorphine, tell your doctor before you start using ondansetron.

In addition to ondansetron, many drugs may affect heart rhythm (prolongation of QT time), including: amiodarone, moxifloxacin, procainamide, quinidine, sotalol ( sotalol), pimozide, and macrolide antibiotics (such as erythromycin). Therefore, before using ondansetron, make a list of all the medications you are taking and share it with your doctor and pharmacist.

If you take serotonin-boosting drugs in combination with ondansetron, your risk of serotonin toxicity increases. Tell your doctor if you are using these referees. These include: street medications such as MDMA / "ecstasy", St. John's wort, specific antidepressants (including SSRIs such as fluoxetine / paroxetine, SNRIs such as duloxetine / venlafaxine). Keep in mind that the risk of serotonin toxicity syndrome increases when you increase the dose of these drugs or start using these drugs.

 

Tips to consider before taking ondansetron

  • If you are pregnant or breast-feeding.
