Description
Emadon syrup contains ondansetron which is used to help stop the nausea (sick feeling) and vomiting which can occur after certain treatments. Emadon syrup should only be used to treat the nausea and vomiting for which it has been prescribed. Adults: The management of nausea and vomiting induced by cytotoxic chemotherapy and radiotherapy, and for the prevention of post-operative nausea and vomiting in adults. Paediatric Population: Ondansetron is indicated for the management of chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV) in children aged ≥6 months. No studies have been conducted on the use of orally administered ondansetron in the prevention and treatment of PONV in children aged ≥1 month administration by IV injection is recommended for this purpose.
How to use
Adults: The emetogenic potential of cancer treatment varies according to the doses and combinations of chemotherapy and radiotherapy regimens used. The selection of dose regimen should be determined by the severity of the emetogenic challenge.
Emetogenic chemotherapy and radiotherapy: Ondansetron can be given either by rectal, oral (tablets or syrup), intravenous or intramuscular administration.
For oral administration: 8 mg taken 1 to 2 hours before chemotherapy or radiation treatment, followed by 8 mg every 12 hours for a maximum of 5 days to protect against delayed or prolonged emesis.
For highly emetogenic chemotherapy): a single dose of up to 24 mg ondansetron taken with 12 mg oral dexamethasone sodium phosphate, 1 to 2 hours before chemotherapy, may be used.
To protect against delayed or prolonged emesis after the first 24 hours, oral or rectal treatment with Ondansetron should be continued for up to 5 days after a course of treatment. The recommended dose for oral administration is 8 mg twice daily.
Paediatric Population: CINV in children aged ≥6 months and adolescents
The dose for CINV can be calculated based on body surface area (BSA) or weight.
In paediatric clinical studies, ondansetron was given by IV infusion diluted in 25 to 50 ml of saline or other compatible infusion fluid and infused over not less than 15 minutes.
Weight-based dosing results in higher total daily doses compared to BSA-based dosing.
Ondansetron injection should be diluted in 5% dextrose or 0.9% sodium chloride or other compatible infusion fluid and infused intravenously over not less than 15 minutes.
Precautions
Contraindications: Hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the excipients. Concomitant use with apomorphine.
Special warnings and precautions for use: Hypersensitivity reactions have been reported in patients who have exhibited hypersensitivity to other selective 5HT3 receptor antagonists.
Respiratory events should be treated symptomatically and clinicians should pay particular attention to them as precursors of hypersensitivity reactions.
