Main Use Active Ingredient Marketed Name
Preventing vomiting and nausea in chemotherapy patients Granisetron Graniset

Uses
Graniset (Granisetron) is used to help prevent the occurrence of vomiting and nausea in patients undergoing cancer treatment such as radiotherapy or chemotherapy. Vomiting occurs in chemotherapy patients due to certain cells (called the enterochromaffin cells) releasing a neurotransmitter called serotonin. As a result of this, the serotonin causes a reaction which triggers the 5-HT3 receptors, resulting in vomiting. By blocking the 5-HT3 receptors, this drug helps to provide effective relief from nausea and vomiting in chemotherapy patients. Some people have also used it for preventing postoperative vomiting.

Dosage and Administration
Graniset (Granisetron) comes as 1mg strength tablets for oral administration. Doctors sometimes direct patients undergoing chemotherapy to administer 2mg once per day, with two tablets (each containing 1mg of the active ingredient) taken up to 1 hour prior to the commencement of chemotherapy. As an alternative to this, it is possible that the doctor may instruct the patient to take 1mg twice per day, with one tablet taken up to 1 hour prior to the start of chemotherapy, and the next one taken 12 hours later. Doctors generally tell patients to only take the medicine on days when chemotherapy is due to take place.
