Introduction

Olron 4mg Injection is an antiemetic 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.

Olron 4mg Injection will not relieve other side effects associated with cancer treatments. It is given under the supervision of a doctor and may be used alone or with other medications. Your doctor will give you appropriate dose depending on what you are taking it for. It is important that you keep having the injections until your doctor decides it is 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.  But, if these side effects bother you or do not go away, consult your doctor who 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 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 for advice from your healthcare team.
