Overview

Introduction

Nozia Injection is an anti-emetic medicine commonly used to control nausea and vomiting due to certain medical conditions like stomach upset. It is also used to prevent nausea and vomiting caused due to any surgery, cancer drug therapy, or radiotherapy.

Nozia Injection will not relieve other side effects associated with cancer treatments. It is administered under the supervision of a healthcare professional only. Remember, you should not stop taking the medication suddenly without talking to your doctor. It is important that you keep having the injections until your doctor decides it to be safe to stop them. After this, your doctor may prescribe tablets instead of the injections. 

The most common side effects of taking this medicine include injection site pain, headache and constipation. These symptoms should disappear when you stop taking the medicine. However, if these side effects bother you or do not go away, your doctor may be able to suggest ways of preventing or reducing them.

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 any other medicine 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.

Uses of Nozia Injection

Benefits of Nozia Injection

In Nausea

Nozia Injection blocks the action of chemicals in the body that can make you feel or be sick. It is often used to prevent nausea and vomiting associated with cancer treatment such as chemotherapy or radiation therapy in adults as well as children. This medicine helps you recover more comfortably from these treatments. Nozia Injection is also effective at preventing nausea and vomiting after an operation (in adults only). Nozia Injection is given as an injection by a doctor, in the dose that is best for you, depending on the condition you are being treated for. Do not self-administer this medicine to avoid any undesirable side effects.

Side effects of Nozia Injection

Most side effects do not require any medical attention and disappear as your body adjusts to the medicine. Consult your doctor if they persist or if you’re worried about them

Common side effects of Nozia

  • Constipation
  • Dizziness
  • Headache
  • Injection site pain

How to cope with side effects?

The occurrence of side effects varies from person to person. The following are a few ways of dealing with some of the common side effects. However, consult your doctor if these persist.

  • Coping with Constipation
    Try to eat foods which are high in fiber such as fresh fruits, vegetables and cereals to increase the bulk and consistency of bowel movements. Drink plenty of water or non-alcoholic drinks and stay hydrated to promote healthy digestion. Increasing physical activities such as walking, yoga and regular exercise can also be helpful. If your condition does not improve, you can ask your doctor to prescribe you laxative medicine.
  • Coping with Dizziness
    This is usually short-lived and should go away within a few days. If this happens, stop what you are doing and sit or lie down until you feel better. Lying still in a dark, quiet room may help reduce the spinning feeling. Sleep with your head slightly raised on two or more pillows. Get up slowly from a lying or sitting position. Get plenty of rest and try to relax as being anxious can make it worse. Try taking this medicine at bedtime to reduce the symptoms. Drinking plenty of water and ginger tea may also help. Avoid alcohol, caffeine and smoking as it will make you feel worse. Avoid driving or using tools or machinery until you feel better.
  • Coping with Headache
    Make sure you rest and drink plenty of fluids. Rest in a quiet, dimly lit room. Do not sleep more than you normally would. Do not strain your eyes (for example by looking at a screen). Do not drink alcohol. Headaches are usually temporary and usually go away with time. But, if they last longer or get worse, ask your doctor to recommend a painkiller.
  • Coping with Injection site pain
    Try to change the area of injection and the exact site of injection each time. Apply a cold compress to the injection site. These symptoms are usually mild and should only last a few hours. You can ask your doctor to recommend a medicine if it is bothering you.
