Q. What is Emino Syrup used for?
Emino Syrup is generally given before any major surgery or before chemotherapy and radiotherapy sessions. In case your child is about to undergo any of the above procedures, the doctor may ask you to give Emino Syrup to your child to prevent vomiting post-procedure. Apart from this, Emino Syrup is also found useful in treating vomiting caused due to diseases of the stomach. In such a case, your child’s doctor may prescribe giving Emino Syrup to your child for a few days. Stick to the dose for best results.
Q. What if my child takes too much Emino Syrup?
Emino Syrup is unlikely to cause harm if you give an extra dose by mistake. However, you must still speak to your child’s doctor immediately. Sometimes, excessive intake of Emino Syrup can cause some serious side effects like excess sleepiness, agitation, rapid heartbeat, hypertension, flushing, dilated pupils, sweating, involuntary muscle jerk, uncontrolled eye movements, overactive reflexes, and seizures. These symptoms are collectively known as serotonin syndrome. If any of these appear, consult the doctor without any delay.
Q. How should Emino Syrup be stored?
Emino Syrup should be stored at room temperature, in a dry place, away from direct heat and light. Also, keep all the medicines out of the reach and sight of children to avoid any accidental intake.
Q. What all medicines should my child avoid while taking Emino Syrup?
Usually, it is advised not to give Emino Syrup along with antidepressant medicines, apomorphine, anti-migraine medicines, painkillers, heart medicines, and antibiotics like linezolid. But, it is ideal to speak to your child’s doctor before coming to any conclusion. So, narrate your child’s complete medical history to your child’s doctor and follow their advice strictly.
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.
Q. My child is having a migraine and is on medication. Can I give Emino Syrup along with it?
Avoid combining Emino Syrup with such medicines because concomitant use of Emino Syrup with medicines meant to treat depression or migraine results in serotonin syndrome. Consult your child’s doctor before giving any medicine to your child.
