What is it for?
Emeset (Ondansetron) is for preventing nausea and vomiting. Cancer chemotherapy, surgery and other types of medical treatment can sometimes cause nausea. Doctors will often prescribe it to patients undergoing these types of treatment to prevent them from vomiting. It works by blocking a natural substance in the body (serotonin) which can cause vomiting.

How do you use it?
Emeset (Ondansetron) tablets need to be swallowed whole. Usually, patients are told that it is best to take it 30 minutes before starting chemotherapy, 1 hour before surgery or radiotherapy. Your doctor might tell you to take extra doses, usually 1 to 3 doses per day, during chemotherapy and radiotherapy. It might be necessary to keep taking it for 1 to 2 days after you finish medical treatment. Never take more than your doctor tells you to take.
