Through Push Health, people in need of an ondansetron prescription can request ondansetron HCl ODT online and get an ondansetron HCl tablet prescription, including ondansetron 4 mg, ondansetron 8 mg, and ondansetron ODT medication, when appropriate.
Ondansetron - How It Works
What is ondansetron used for? Ondansetron, marketed under the brand name Zofran, is a medication sometimes prescribed for the prevention of nausea and vomiting - similar to prochlorperazine (Compazine). Specifically, ondansetron is indicated for postoperative nausea and vomiting, nausea and vomiting associated with radiotherapy in certain classes of patients, and nausea and vomiting associated with moderate or highly emetogenic cancer chemotherapy. How ondansetron works is not fully understood. Ondansetron prescription medication is a selective 5-HT3 receptor antagonist and, because serotonin receptors are present all over the body, it is possible that ondansetron works both centrally and peripherally.
Ondansetron - Dosage and Cost
Ondansetron medication is available in the form of tablets, orally disintegrating tablets (ODT) and oral solution. When found in tablet or ODT form, ondansetron is available in 4 mg and 8 mg dosages. Ondansetron tablets are oval, film-coated tablets that are white or yellow in color. Ondansetron ODTs are white, round, plano-convex tablets. Ondansetron oral solution is a clear, colorless to light yellow liquid with a strawberry odor. As a racemic form of ondansetron, ondansetron hydrochloride selectively blocks serotonin 5-HT3 receptor types. Approximately 56% of ondansetron is available following oral administration of an 8 mg tablet and ondansetron metabolites are found in the urine. Ondansetron should be stored between 2° C and 30° C. Generic ondansetron HCl tablets and ondansetron ODT typically cost under $1 per pill at most pharmacies. Ondansetron coupons may be available online.
Can I Buy Ondansetron Online?
One cannot simply buy ondansetron as it is a prescription medication. Because of this, ondansetron OTC is also not available at pharmacies. However, Push Health connects people who require an ondansetron ODT prescription with providers who can prescribe ondansetron HCl medication, including ondansetron 4 mg tablets, ondansetron 8 mg tablets, and ondansetron ODT, when appropriate.
Ondansetron - Side Effects
Ondansetron HCl medication should not be used by anyone with a known hypersensitivity or allergy to ondansetron prescription medication or any of the components or by anyone who is using apomorphine. Common adverse events in adults using ondansetron include headache, fatigue, diarrhea and constipation. Ondansetron also has other significant side effects, including, but not limited to, QT interval prolongation, serotonin syndrome and masking of progressive ileus following surgery or chemotherapy but is typically tolerated well. No antidote has been identified for ondansetron overdoses. Ondansetron medication should not be used at the same time as alcohol. All questions and concerns about potential side effects of ondansetron should be directed to one's pharmacist and medical provider prior to using ondansetron prescription medication.
