    Special Precautions

    Hypersensitivity (including respiratory events). Ondansetron prolongs the QT interval in a dose dependant manner. Hypokalaemia and hypomagnesaemia should be corrected prior to ondansetron administration. There have been post-marketing reports describing  patients with serotonin syndrome. Patients with signs of subacute intestinal obstruction should be monitored following administration. In patients with adenotonsillar surgery prevention of nausea and vomiting with ondansetron may mask occult bleeding. Paediatric patients receiving ondansetron with hepatotoxic chemotherapeutic agents should be monitored closely for impaired hepatic function. Patients with rare hereditary problems of galactose intolerance, Lapp lactase deficiency or glucose-galactose malabsorption should not take this medicine.
