This medication is prescribed as monotherapy or in combination with other medications to mitigate nausea and vomiting induced by cancer treatment via chemotherapy and radiation therapy.  

This medication is used to prevent and manage postoperative nausea and vomiting. Its mechanism of action entails inhibition of serotonin, a natural substance in the body that triggers vomiting. 

Uses and Dosage 

Dosage instructions for ondansetron use are based on the patient’s medical condition and response to therapy. The usual maximum dosage for patients with severe liver issues is 8 milligrams within 24 hours. Children’s doses may depend on age and weight. Follow all directions given by your doctor. 

To prevent nausea caused by chemotherapy, take this medication orally within 30 minutes before treatment commences. To prevent nausea from radiation treatment, take this medication orally 1 to 2 hours before the start of your treatment. To prevent nausea after surgery, take ondansetron orally 1 hour before surgery. It can be taken with or without food, depending on your doctor’s instructions. However, your doctor may advise you not to eat before chemotherapy, radiation, or surgery. 

If you are taking this medication on a schedule, take it at the same time each day to avoid forgetting. Take any other doses as directed by your doctor. Ondansetron can be taken up to 3 times a day for 1 to 2 days after chemotherapy or radiation treatment. Avoid taking more medication than prescribed or taking it more often than instructed. Seek your doctor’s or pharmacist’s guidance if you have any doubts.
