Kytril

What If I Take an Overdose?

It is not known exactly what to expect from a Kytril overdose. An overdose is unlikely, as most people are given just a few tablets of the drug at a time, due to the high cost of the medication.
 
If you happen to take too much, seek immediate medical attention (see Kytril Overdose).
 

How Should Kytril Be Stored?

Kytril should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Both tablets and oral solution should be stored in an airtight container.
 
Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children.
 

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

Tell your healthcare provider if you forgot to take your Kytril dose before your chemotherapy or radiation is started. Most likely, you will be given a dose immediately.
 

Available Strengths

Kytril comes in 1-mg tablets, as well as in an injectable form. An oral solution (liquid) was once available but is no longer being made.
 

Is There a Generic Version of Kytril?

Currently, both brand-name and generic versions of Kytril are licensed for sale (see Generic Kytril).
