About Uniondam 2mg Injection

Uniondam 2mg Injection is an antiemetic used to prevent and treat nausea and vomiting during chemotherapy. Nausea is a feeling of uneasiness in 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.

Uniondam 2mg Injection 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. 

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

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.
