Drug Uses

This medicine is an anti-emetic agent, used to prevent nausea and vomiting, caused by cancer chemotherapy and radiation. It works by blocking one of the body's chemicals, called serotonin, that can cause vomiting. It may also be used to treat other conditions as determined by your doctor.

How to use

Follow the directions for using this medicine, provided by your doctor. Unless otherwise directed by your doctor, take the first dose of this medicine up to 1 hour before a dose of your cancer treatment and another dose of this medicine 12 hours later only on days, chemotherapy is given.

Drug Class and Mechanism

Kytril is a selective blocking agent of the serotonin 5-HT3 receptor. In plain speak serotonin is released by the small intestine when given chemotherapy (and possibly in reaction to other events). This triggers the vomiting reflex. If this mechanism can be blocked with drugs such as kytril, vomiting can be reduced or eliminated.
