Kytril Injection Description

Kytril Injection or Granisetron HCl generic is usually administered by a trained health professional in a hospital setting. Your injection may be done intravenously by needle over 30 seconds or by infusion in which the dose of Kytril is added to a sterile solution in a bag that delivers a specified amount through a drip into an IV catheter placed in a vein. This is all done to prevent nausea and vomiting that can occur after chemotherapy. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

How Kytril Injection Works

Kytril Injection is a serotonin antagonist medication formulated to prevent nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapy for treating cancer. Serotonin is a naturally produced chemical found throughout your body, including your brain and your gut. When you become nauseated, serotonin in your gastrointestinal system sends a signal to your brain that you are going to vomit as an immune response to a foreign substance in your body. By having a Kytril Injection administered as a pre-treatment drug, the serotonin receptors are blocked and fail to send a signal.

Conditions Treated by Kytril Injection

Some individuals may find that anesthetics make them nauseous as well and can benefit from a Kytril Injection given pre-operatively. Certain surgical procedures that involve the upper body could expose patients to further injury if they become sick from the anesthetic as the strain of vomiting can threaten any suturing or stapling.

Kytril solution for injection is also indicated in adults for the prevention and treatment of acute nausea and vomiting associated with radiation therapy. High doses of radiation are used to destroy cancer cells. Side effects occur because radiation can also damage healthy cells and tissues near the treatment area which alerts your immune system that there is an injury or threat. Depending on the area being treated, you may find you will become nauseous.

Before You Receive Kytril Injection

Make certain that your doctor is aware of other medications you are taking, including over the counter medicine, Rx drugs, and any herbal, dietary, or vitamin supplements. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, trying to conceive, or are breast feeding before receiving a Kytril Injection to be certain it will not cause harm to your unborn or nursing baby.

Precautions for Kytril Injection

Serotonin syndrome is a risk to those that are taking serotonin blockers regularly as the body chemical can build up in your system and lead to diarrhea, fever, and seizures. These symptoms may vanish once the medicine is stopped. Until the Kytril Injection has cleared your body, use caution when attempting any actions.
