INTRODUCTION

EME OD contains Palonosetron which belongs to a group of medicines called  Serotonin (5HT3) antagonists. It helps to stop nausea and vomiting associated with cancer chemotherapy. Always take this medicine in the dose and duration advised by doctor. 

5­ HT3 receptors are located on the nerve terminals of the vagus in the periphery and centrally in the chemoreceptor trigger zone. Chemotherapeutic agents produce nausea and vomiting by releasing serotonin from the enterochromaffin cells of the small intestine and that the released serotonin then activates 5-HT3 receptors located on vagal afferents to initiate the vomiting reflex.

Before taking EME OD tell your doctor about your complete medical history including any heart-problem, liver impairment, kidney malfunction, blockage in stomach or intestine. Pregnant and breastfeeding women are advised to consult the doctor before taking this medicine. The common side effects are headache, abdominal pain, dizziness or tiredness.
