How To Use

  • Repeating a dose within 7 days is not recommended.
  • Consult your doctor or pharmacist for more details.
  • Before using, check this product visually for particles or discoloration.
  • If either is present, do not use the liquid.

Side Effects
  • Headache, constipation, diarrhea, or dizziness may occur.
  • If any of these effects persist or worsen, notify your doctor or pharmacist promptly.
  • Tell your doctor immediately if any of these highly unlikely but very serious side effects occur: irregular heartbeat, fainting.
  • A serious allergic reaction to Aloxi is unlikely, but seek immediate medical attention if it occurs.
  • Symptoms of a serious allergic reaction include: rash, itching, swelling, severe dizziness, trouble breathing.
  • If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor or pharmacist.

Precautions
  • Before using Aloxi, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history, especially of: heart problems (e.g., QTc prolongation, arrhythmias), low mineral levels (electrolyte imbalances such as low potassium or magnesium), any allergies (especially to other serotonin receptor blockers such as ondansetron, dolasetron).
  • Aloxi may make you dizzy; use caution engaging in activities requiring alertness such as driving or using machinery.
  • Limit alcoholic beverages.
  • Aloxi should be used only when clearly needed during pregnancy.
  • Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor.

Drug Interactions
  • Before using Aloxi, tell your doctor or pharmacist of all prescription and nonprescription/herbal products you may use, especially of: anthracylines (e.g., doxorubicin, daunorubicin), water pills (diuretics).
  • Other drugs besides palonosetron which may affect the heart rhythm (QTc prolongation in the EKG) include dofetilide, pimozide, procainamide, quinidine, sotalol, and sparfloxacin among others.
  • QTc prolongation can infrequently result in serious, rarely fatal, irregular heartbeats.
  • Consult your doctor or pharmacist for details.
  • Ask for instructions about whether you need to stop any other QTc-prolonging drugs you may be using in order to minimize the risk of this effect.
  • Do not start or stop any medicine without doctor or pharmacist approval.
