What should I know about Anzemet injection before receiving it?

Before receiving Anzemet injection, which also goes by the generic name dolasetron, tell your doctor if you have any allergies to this medicine or similar medicines, such as ondansetron, palonosetron or granisetron. Also, tell your doctor if you have any of the following medical conditions: an abnormal heart rhythm, a medical or family history of a condition called long QT syndrome or low electrolytes. These conditions may affect the use of Anzemet. Before you take this medicine, tell your doctor if you are breastfeeding. Taking Anzemet with other drugs that increase serotonin in the brain, such as antidepressants and migraine medications, can lead to a dangerous condition called serotonin syndrome.
