Emeset 4 ODT Tablet

Prescription Required

Overview

Introduction of Emeset Tablet

Emeset 4 ODT Tablet is a medicine used to prevent you from feeling or being sick (nausea and vomiting) during and after chemotherapy or radiotherapy treatment for cancer. It is known as an anti-emetic drug and is also used to prevent nausea and vomiting after surgery.

Emeset 4 ODT Tablet will not relieve other side effects associated with cancer treatments. It may be used alone or with other medications and can be taken with or without food. The amount you take will depend on what you are taking it for, and your doctor will tell you what is appropriate. The first dose is normally taken before the start of surgery, chemotherapy or radiotherapy. After these treatments, take any further doses as prescribed by your doctor (normally only for a few days at most). Take it regularly at the same time(s) each day to get the most benefit. Be careful not to take too much.

The most common side effects of taking this medicine include headache, diarrhoea or constipation and feeling tired. These symptoms should disappear when you stop taking the medicine but if they bother you or will not go away, your doctor may be able to suggest ways of preventing or reducing them. The side effects may be preferable to the nausea and vomiting you might experience without this medicine.

Before taking this medicine, tell your doctor if you have heart or liver problems or a blockage in your stomach or intestines. Also tell your doctor about other drugs you are using, especially medicines to treat epilepsy, heart problems, cancer and depression. These may affect, or be affected by, this medicine. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, ask advice from your healthcare team. Emeset 4 ODT Tablet is not approved for use by anyone younger than 4 years old.
