Expert advice for EMPOV

  • Aprepitant can only prevent nausea and vomiting and is not used for its treatment. Do not start aprepitant if you are already having nausea or vomiting.
  • If you have liver disease, you may be monitored with liver function test regularly, as it may affect the breakdown of this medicine in your body.
  • You are advised to use another or additional non-hormonal form of birth control method during and after up to 2 months of using aprepitant, as certain hormonal birth control [e.g. birth control pills, skin patches, implants, and certain intrauterine devices (IUDs)] may not work adequately when taken along with aprepitant. 
  • Do not drive or use machinery while taking Aprepitant as it may make you feel dizzy and sleepy.
