Granisetron Hydrochloride Injection

Granisetron injection is used to prevent nausea and vomiting caused by cancer chemotherapy and to prevent and treat nausea and vomiting that may occur after surgery.

Granisetron Hydrochloride Injection. This medication is primarily used to prevent nausea and vomiting induced by cancer drug treatments (chemotherapy) or following surgery. Here are some key points:

  • Mechanism of Action:

    • Granisetron is a selective serotonin 5-HT₃ receptor antagonist. It works by blocking the action of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that can trigger nausea and vomiting.
    • By inhibiting serotonin binding to its receptors in the gastrointestinal tract and the brain, granisetron helps prevent these unpleasant side effects.
  • Indications:

    • Chemotherapy-Induced Nausea and Vomiting (CINV): Granisetron is commonly administered to cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. It helps manage acute and delayed CINV.
    • Postoperative Nausea and Vomiting (PONV): After surgery, patients may experience nausea and vomiting. Granisetron can be used to prevent or alleviate these symptoms.
  • Dosage and Administration:

    • Granisetron is available as an injectable solution.
    • The dosage and frequency depend on the specific situation, patient characteristics, and the chemotherapy regimen.
    • It can be administered intravenously (IV) or intramuscularly (IM).
  • Side Effects:

    • Common side effects include headache, constipation, and fatigue.
    • Rarely, patients may experience allergic reactions or changes in heart rhythm (QT prolongation).
    • Always consult a healthcare professional for personalized advice.
  • Precautions and Contraindications:

    • Granisetron should be used cautiously in patients with a history of heart conditions or electrolyte imbalances.
    • Avoid concurrent use with medications that also prolong the QT interval.
    • Inform your healthcare provider about any other medications you’re taking.
