What If I Take an Overdose of Anzemet?

It is not known exactly what to expect from an Anzemet overdose. An overdose is unlikely, as most people are given just a few tablets at a time (due to the high cost of the medication). In one case, a person who took too much Anzemet developed low blood pressure, dizziness, and changes in the heart rhythm.
 
If you happen to overdose, seek medical attention immediately (see Anzemet Overdose).
 

Storage Methods

Anzemet should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. The tablets should be stored in an airtight container.
 
Keep Anzemet and all other medications out of the reach of children.
 

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose of Anzemet?

Tell your healthcare provider if you forgot to take your dose before you start your chemotherapy or surgery. You will probably be given your Anzemet dose immediately.
