Sancuso Drug Information

Sancuso® (granisetron transdermal) is a skin patch that is applied 24 to 48 hours before the start of certain chemotherapy regimens. This prescription drug is approved to help prevent nausea and vomiting that last five days or less. It is worn until at least 24 hours after the last day of chemotherapy for up to seven days total. Sancuso is not licensed to treat nausea and vomiting once they have already started.
 
Although many people do not have any problems while taking this drug, Sancuso is not suitable for everyone. For instance, tell your healthcare provider about any allergies you have and any medications you are taking. Also, inform your healthcare provider about any other medical conditions you may have, including liver disease or a bowel blockage.
