Introduction

Ondilex 2mg Oral Solution is a medicine given to children to help treat nausea and vomiting. It is mainly given to treat nausea and vomiting associated with surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and stomach/intestinal infection. It also helps treat vomiting that is caused as a side effect of medicines like painkillers.

Ondilex 2mg Oral Solution may be given before or after meals. To control vomiting caused due to chemotherapy, give this medicine to your child 30 minutes before the procedure. Give it 1 to 2 hours before a radiotherapy session and 1 hour before surgery to prevent your child from vomiting post these procedures. If your child expels out the medicine within 30 minutes of the intake, help your child calm down and repeat the dose. Do not double the dose if it is already time for the next dose.

Ondilex 2mg Oral Solution may cause some temporary side effects such as headache, constipation, diarrhea, and fatigue. These side effects usually subside once your child’s body adapts to the medicine. In case these side effects persist or become bothersome, do reach out to the doctor on a priority basis.

Let the doctor know about all the medicines your child is taking, including painkillers, antibiotics, or medicines taken to treat depression. Also, inform the doctor if your child has a history of liver problems, kidney malfunction, blockage in the gastrointestinal tract, heart problems, or allergies to any medicine, its ingredients, or a food product. This information is very important for dose alterations and for planning your child’s overall treatment.

Uses of Ondilex Oral Solution

Benefits of Ondilex Oral Solution

In Treatment of Nausea

Chemotherapy, radiotherapy, major surgeries, and abdominal infection put your child at risk of developing severe nausea and vomiting. It happens due to the release of a chemical called serotonin. Ondilex 2mg Oral Solution acts by blocking the effect of this chemical and prevents nausea and vomiting. It also helps your child to recover more comfortably from these treatments. Stick to the prescribed dose, time, and way, and do not increase or decrease the dose by yourself without consulting your child’s doctor as it may result in side effects.

Side effects of Ondilex Oral Solution

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

How to use Ondilex Oral Solution

Take this medicine in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor. Check the label for directions before use. Measure it with a measuring cup and take it by mouth. Shake well before use. Ondilex 2mg Oral Solution may be taken with or without food, but it is better to take it at a fixed time.

How Ondilex Oral Solution works

During radiotherapy, chemotherapy, abdominal infection, or any major surgeries, the dead cells in the body start releasing a chemical called serotonin directly into the blood. Later, this stimulates special centers in the body that are responsible for inducing vomiting in your child. Giving Ondilex 2mg Oral Solution just before the procedure helps block the effect of this chemical on vomiting centers of the brain and prevents vomiting.

Q. In what conditions do I need to call my child’s doctor right away?

Call your child’s doctor immediately if your child develops symptoms of serotonin syndrome like irregular heartbeat, green-colored vomiting, inability to pass wind, pale skin and eyes, dark-colored urine, restlessness, and insomnia.
