About Nucetran 2Ml Inj

Nucetran 2Ml Inj belongs to a class of drugs called antiemetics used to prevent nausea and vomiting during chemotherapy. Nausea is a feeling of uneasiness of the stomach that often comes before vomiting. On the other hand, vomiting is the forcible voluntary or involuntary emptying of stomach contents through the mouth.

Nucetran 2Ml Inj contains Ondansetron which works by blocking the action of serotonin, a chemical that stimulates the vomiting centre (chemoreceptor trigger zone – CTZ) located in the brain. Thus, it prevents nausea and vomiting. 

Nucetran 2Ml Inj will be administered by a healthcare professional. Do not self-administer. In some cases, Nucetran 2Ml Inj may cause headache, constipation, a feeling of warmth or flushing, redness, and irritation at the site of injection. Most of these side effects of Nucetran 2Ml Inj do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your doctor. 

If you are allergic to Ondansetron, Palanosetron, Granisetron, or any other medicines, please tell your doctor. Nucetran 2Ml Inj should be given to children only in doses advised by the doctor based on the child’s body weight or body surface area. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, must inform your doctor before receiving Nucetran 2Ml Inj.

    Disease/Condition Glossary

    Nausea and vomiting: Nausea is a feeling of uneasiness of the stomach that often comes before vomiting. On the other hand, vomiting is the forcible voluntary or involuntary emptying of stomach contents through the mouth. In short, nausea and vomiting are not diseases but are symptoms of many conditions like infections, motion sickness, an early stage of pregnancy, and gastroparesis (slow stomach emptying). A receptor located in the brain known as the chemoreceptor trigger zone (CTZ) controls vomiting.
