zofran po dose
The stability of ondansetron and fluconazole in 5% dextrose injection and normal saline during simulated Y-site injection at room temperature was studied. Ondansetron 0.03, 0.1 and 0.3 mg/ml were admixed 1ratio1 with fluconazole 2 mg/ml. The solutions were stored at room temperature and samples were retrieved at time 0, 1, 2, 4 and 12 hr for immediate assay. At the time of the assay and before any dilution, each sample was visually inspected for clarity, color, precipitation, and the pH was determined. Drug concentrations were measured by a stability-indicating high performance liquid chromatograph. Ondansetron 0.03, 0.1 and 0.3 mg/ml were stable when mixed with concentration of fluconazole 2 mg/ml. There were no change in clarity and color and no precipitates in any admixture for 12 hr of inspection. The pH measurements did not have a particular trend in any direction over time.

The incidence of PONV in patients undergoing total abdominal hysterectomy under spinal anaesthesia with i.v. PCA morphine is very high (88.2%). Antiemetic prophylaxis with ondansetron is highly recommended in this patients group resulting in a lower incidence of nausea and vomiting, and significantly improves patient' satisfaction and life quality in the early postoperative period.

This study provided pharmacological evidence that tapentadol inhibits stimulated CGRP release from the rat brainstem in vitro through a mechanism involving an increase in 5-HT levels in the system and the subsequent activation of 5-HT3 receptors.
It is suggested that the MMC cycle is mediated by a positive feedback mechanism via the interaction between motilin and 5-HT.
zofran generic dissolvable
The recovery times to patient orientation, oral intake, ambulation, and actual discharge did not differ among the three groups. The incidence of PONV, nausea scores, and requirement for rescue antiemetics were also similar in all three groups during the 24-h study period. In addition, the complete response rates to the prophylactic antiemetics (96-98%) and percentages of very satisfied patients (93-98%) were equally high in all three groups. However, the antiemetic drug acquisition costs were US $2.50, $15.50, and $18.50 in the control, dolasetron, and ondansetron groups, respectively.

5-Hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) is an important neurotransmitter and hormone/paracrine agent mediating various enteric functions. Its precise physiological and pathophysiological role remains unclear. This study investigated the effects of 5-HT on colonic function and the effects of the newly developed 5-HT3 and 5-HT4 receptor antagonist, FK1052, on colonic responses to 5-HT or stress stimulus in vivo. In conscious rats, both 5-HT and 5-methoxytryptamine significantly increased fecal pellet output and accelerated colonic transit. In contrast, the effect of 2-methyl-5-HT was slight. Although ondansetron and granisetron slightly reduced 5-HT (1 mg/kg s.c.) stimulated colonic transit, FK1052 [(+)-8,9-dihydro-10-methyl-7-[(5-methyl-4-imidazolyl)methyl]pyrido- [1,2-a]-indole-6(7H)-one hydrochloride], at 0.1 mg/kg p.o., inhibited completely the increases in the colonic transit. Furthermore, FK1052, ondansetron and granisetron significantly depressed the increase in fecal pellet output caused by wrap-restraint stress, with ED50 values of 0.21, 3.0 and 1.1 mg/kg p.o., respectively. Intraperitoneal administration of 5-HT and 5-methoxytryptamine, but not 2-methyl-5-HT, produced a dose-related increase in the incidence of diarrhea in fasted mice. 5-HT (0.32 mg/kg i.p.)-induced diarrhea was also inhibited by FK1052, ondansetron and granisetron, with ED50 values of 0.09, 2.3 and 0.88 mg/kg p.o., respectively. These findings suggest that 5-HT3 and 5-HT4 receptors may have an important role in colonic function and FK1052 may have therapeutic potential in the treatment of gastrointestinal dysfunction such as irritable bowel syndrome.

The exposed group (n = 143) was comprised of children whose mothers received promethazine or ondansetron during pregnancy. Unexposed children (n = 407) were used for comparison. Neonatal Behavioral Assessment Scale data 7 days (range, 2-77) was available on 345 infants (exposed n = 102; unexposed n = 243), and a total of 247 CBCLs (exposed n = 51; unexposed n = 196) at 29 (range, 17-66) months of age. No significant differences were seen using Neonatal Behavioral Assessment Scale and CBCL. Statistically significant differences were seen in gestational age at delivery (0.3 weeks) and birthweight (110 g).
ondansetron zofran dosage
A total of 150 patients undergoing major laparoscopic (n = 80) or plastic (n = 70) surgery procedures received either an active TDS patch (containing scopolamine 1.5 mg) or a similar appearing sham patch 60 min before entering the operating room. All patients received a standardized general anesthetic technique. A second study medication was administered in a 2-mL numbered syringe containing either saline (for the two active TDS groups), droperidol, 1.25 mg, or ondansetron, 4 mg (for the sham patch groups), and was administered IV near the end of the procedure. The occurrence of postoperative nausea and vomiting/retching, need for rescue antiemetics, and the complete response rates (i.e., absence of protracted nausea or repeated episodes of emesis requiring antiemetic rescue medication) was reported. In addition, complaints of visual disturbances, dry mouth, drowsiness, and restlessness were noted up to 72 h after surgery.
zofran iv dose
We found no evidence to support the noninferiority of alizapride 100 mg when compared with ondansetron 4 mg for the intraoperative prophylaxis of PONV. However, the lower than expected incidences of PONV reduced the power of this study to conclude noninferiority or confirm significant beneficial effects for either antiemetic for PON and POV during the PACU stay.

With regard to prophylaxis, 10% of patients receiving ondansetron had PONV during the 4-h observation period versus 40% of those receiving placebo (P < 0.001). The incidence of vomiting alone (PONV score > or = 2) was 5% and 25%, respectively (P < 0.001). There were no significant differences between ondansetron and droperidol in the treatment of PONV. However, at the end of the 4-h period, ondansetron patients were less sedated than were patients who had received droperidol (P < 0.01). Interviews with parents could be performed for 143 of 200 children (76 ondansetron and 67 placebo). Twenty-four children (15 ondansetron and 9 placebo) showed late-onset PONV after the 4-h observation period but within 24 h of the procedure (19.7% vs. 13.4%; P not significant).

The use of risk models facilitates the judicious use of pharmacotherapy to ameliorate PONV especially in the high-risk patient and may lead to a more cost effective and efficient means of managing PONV.

A number of studies have demonstrated that 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) can induce muscle contraction or relaxation response and enhance secretion in the gastrointestinal tract via a multiplicity of 5-HT receptor subtypes. In the present study, we investigated the pharmacological characterization of the 5-HT-induced contractile response in longitudinal smooth muscle isolated from the feline ileum. Addition of 5-HT into muscle chambers enhanced the basal tone and spontaneous activity in a concentration-dependent manner. The neurotoxin tetrodotoxin did not alter the 5-HT-induced contraction of the longitudinal muscles. Neither atropine nor guanethidine affected the contraction. The 5-HT agonists, 5-methylserotonin hydrochloride and mosapride, also evoked concentration-dependent contractions. The 5-HT-induced contraction was enhanced by the 5HT(2) receptor antagonist ketanserin and the 5-HT(3) receptor antagonist ondansetron but was inhibited by the 5-HT(1) receptor antagonist methysergide and 5-HT(4) receptor antagonist GR113808. These results indicate that 5-HT(1) and 5-HT(4) receptors may mediate the contraction of the 5-HT-induced response and 5-HT(2) and 5-HT(3) receptors may mediate 5-HT-induced relaxation in feline ileal longitudinal smooth muscles.
zofran drug uses
With the exception of the 16-mg Polybase formulation in women, the two suppositories closely approximated the pharmacokinetics of the 8-mg oral tablet. These results suggest that gender may be a significant factor in ondansetron's disposition.

A 12-year-old boy accidentally ingested a sip of concentrated hydrogen peroxide. He rapidly developed hematemesis and presented to the Emergency Department. His initial work-up was unremarkable, and his symptoms resolved quickly. However, diffuse gas emboli were found within the portal system on abdominal computed tomography. The child was treated with hyperbaric oxygen therapy and later found to have gastric irritation as well as an ulcer on endoscopy. He recovered fully from the incident.

Mean plasma clearance was 0.50 L.hr-1.kg-1 and 0.39 L.hr-1.kg-1, the mean volume of distribution at steady-state was 1.70 L.kg-1 and 1.61 L.kg-1, and the mean plasma terminal half-life was 2.6 hours and 3.1 hours for the 2 mg and 4 mg groups, respectively. On a body surface area basis, mean plasma clearance was 14.0 and 13.7 L.hr-1.m-2 and mean volume of distribution was 47.7 and 55.9 L.m-2 for the 2 and 4 mg groups, respectively. There were no serious adverse events attributable to ondansetron.

Intracolonic AITC stimulates colonic motility and defecation via cholinergic, serotonergic, and TRPA1 pathways. Continuity of colonic enteric neurons plays an essential role in the intracolonic AITC-induced colonic motor response, while extrinsic nerves are important in occurrence and propagation of GMCs.
zofran 2 mg
The dose of ondansetron that the FDA has concerns about is 32 mg i.v. (or several doses that are equivalent to this), which is only used in preventing nausea and vomiting associated with cancer chemotherapy. This suggests that ondansetron may be safe in lower doses used to prevent nausea and vomiting in radiation treatment or postoperatively. However, as there is a report that a lower dose of ondansetron prolonged the QT interval in healthy volunteers, this needs to be clarified by the FDA. More research needs to be undertaken on the relationship between QT prolongation and torsades in order that the FDA can produce clear-cut evidence of proarrhythmic risk when introducing warnings for this.

Routine prophylactic antiemetic treatment of surgical patients appears justified only in case of an increased risk of postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV). The objective of this investigation was to assess the feasibility and efficacy of a dichotomized risk score adapted management of PONV based on ondansetron prophylaxis and treatment with respect to the overall institutional rate of PONV.

Cisplatin may evoke both an acute emetic response during the first 24 hours following treatment and a less well-recognized syndrome of delayed emesis. While delayed emesis is usually less severe in terms of frequency of vomiting episodes, the problem continues to result in significant morbidity. In comparison with acute emesis, the exact pathogenesis of the delayed emesis syndrome remains unclear. Although a combination of oral metoclopramide and dexamethasone is effective in many patients in preventing delayed emesis, almost 50% continue to experience at least one emetic episode when treated with this regimen. A phase III multicenter study has evaluated oral ondansetron versus placebo in the prevention of the delayed-emesis syndrome in 50 patients during days 2 through 5 following high-dose cisplatin administration. Although the daily rates of complete emetic control, failure, and control of nausea favor ondansetron, this trial is statistically inconclusive in establishing efficacy of ondansetron as a single agent in the prevention of delayed emesis. Ondansetron was well tolerated in the dose and schedule used.
