The Effects Of Ondansetron Consumption By Ingestion?
, I got GERD. Then my doctor gave me ondansetron for anti-nausea. I don’t know how to consume it because I wasn’t told. Is it okay if I swallow this drug? R nOh yes one more. You said this drug is for those who have undergone surgery or radiotherapy, huh? I don’t do both. I only got Gerd. Only because I did not recover from taking omeprazole, the medicine was replaced with ondensetron. R nPlease explain. I am afraid of taking the wrong medication.
Hi Anna, thanks for your question
Ondansetron is a drug that is indicated to treat severe nausea and vomiting, especially those that appear after chemotherapy, radiotherapy, or surgery. However, this drug is not only limited to use in the cases above. If deemed necessary, in cases of GERD with severe nausea and vomiting, doctors can prescribe this drug, either alone or in combination with other drugs. Ondansetron cannot be obtained freely in pharmacies, because this drug contains prescription drugs.
You need to know, there are several ondansetron preparations circulating in Indonesia:
tablets - the drug dissolves on the surface of the tongue, not chewed or swallowed by injection / injection - either intramuscularly (into a muscle) or intravenously (into a vein via infusion) suppositories - rectally Be sure to always follow the doctor's recommended instructions for use. If your complaints do not get better after taking this drug, it is better to go back to the doctor who usually treats you.
Suggestions for you to prevent or relieve GERD symptoms:
avoid lying down after eating, you should give a break of about 1 hour in a sitting position to eat with small portions, but sleep more often with a pillow that is a bit high, avoid stress, avoid consuming foods that are too spicy or acidic, also limit fatty foods, avoid consuming caffeine (coffee, tea, chocolate) or alcohol stop smoking keep your body weight in the ideal range use less tight clothes / pants Hope this information is useful
