Perceived effectiveness for Nausea and vomiting:
Not at all
Advice & Tips:
What a GOD SEND! Works FAST and very easy (SMALL PILL) to take when holding down water seems impossible. Overcoming the feeling of nausea can be just as rough and this medication is perfect.
Seek emergency medical attention if you think you have received too much of this medicine.
Overdose symptoms may include sudden loss of vision, severe constipation, feeling light-headed, or fainting.
Take the missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and take the medicine at your next regularly scheduled time. Do not take extra medicine to make up the missed dose.

phenytoin (Dilantin), phenobarbital (Luminal);
carbamazepine (Carbatrol, Tegretol);
tramadol (Ultram); or

This list is not complete and there may be other drugs that can interact with ondansetron. Tell your doctor about all the prescription and over-the-counter medications you use. This includes vitamins, minerals, herbal products, and drugs prescribed by other doctors. Do not start using a new medication without telling your doctor.
