Description
Kytril, also known as Granisetron is an anti-emetic agent. It is useful in the prevention of nausea as well as vomiting, which is caused by cancer chemotherapy and even radiation.
Drug Uses

Kytril is an anti-emetic agent. It is useful in the prevention of nausea as well as vomiting, which is caused by cancer chemotherapy and even radiation. It blocks serotonin, a chemical which causes vomiting. It can also be used in the treatment of certain other conditions as and when determined by your medical practitioner.

Usage

Medication must always be taken as advised by your medical practitioner/physician. If you are unsure, then please contact your physician for precise instructions. On the other hand, the medicine label usually contains dosage instructions which also may be followed.

Kytril is to be taken at least 1 hour before the cancer treatment and 12 hours after your chemotherapy. It should only be taken on those days when you are undergo chemotherapy.

Medications are prescribed according to a dosage schedule which must be completed in order to reap the benefits of the treatment. Lapsed schedules render Kytril ineffective. So, never stop in between unless advised by your physician.

Drug Class and Mechanism

Kytril being a selective blocking agent of the serotonin 5-HT3 receptor seeks to reduce on symptoms like vomiting. Serotonin is released by the small intestine after the chemotherapy and also in reaction to certain other events. This generates a vomiting reflex. Kytril seeks to block this mechanism.

Missed Dose

You must maintain a schedule for taking the medicine at the same time each day so that you do not miss out on any doses. But, in the advent of a missed dose, take it as soon as you remember so that you can compensate for the loss of the dose.

But, then you may need to adjust your remaining doses accordingly. And if it is almost time for the next dose, then please skip the missed dose and continue with the normal schedule.

Never try to compensate for the missed dose by taking a double dose together. It may cause adverse effects.

Storage

Kytril must be stored at a cool and dark place that prevents it from direct exposure to sunlight. It should also be protected from kids and pets. You can store it at room temperature preferably between 15 to 30 degrees C.
Warning/Precautions

Kytril should be taken only on the days when you have to undergo chemotherapy. Or should be taken only on the prescription of your medical practitioner.

Kytril is known to make some people dizzy or drowsy. And if you consume alcoholic beverages, then the chances of this happening increase greatly. Hence, alcohol and alcoholic beverages must be strictly avoided while taking Kytril. If you have experienced drowsiness after taking Kytril, then avoid tasks that require mental alertness for example, driving, handling heavy equipment or machinery etc.

Pregnancy Info

If you are planning to have a baby or are pregnant already then you must seek advice from your doctor before using Kytril. Discuss the effects and possible risks that Kytril usage may have on the unborn baby.
