Ansmet

Were you looking for information about Anzemet? Ansmet is a common misspelling of Anzemet.
 
Anzemet® is a medication that can be prescribed to prevent nausea and vomiting due to chemotherapy (when taken by mouth) and to prevent and treat nausea and vomiting due to surgery (when given by IV). By blocking a certain chemical in the body (serotonin), the drug can help reduce these symptoms. In clinical studies, up to 73 percent of people receiving chemotherapy had no vomiting when taking this medicine.
 
As with any medicine, side effects are possible. Some of the common side effects of this drug may include fatigue, headache, and diarrhea. Talk to your doctor before using this medication if you have low potassium or magnesium levels in your blood. Also, let your healthcare provider know if you have an irregular heart rhythm, any allergies, or are pregnant or breastfeeding.
