Overview

Introduction

Vomikind 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.

Vomikind Injection will not relieve other side effects associated with cancer treatments. It is given under the supervision of doctor and may be used alone or with other medications. The dose you will be given depends on what you are taking it for, and your doctor will tell you what is appropriate. 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 they bother you or will 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 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.
