Prospect 2Mg Injection belongs to the antiemetics drug group that is used for treating nausea as well as vomiting, caused by other medical treatments such as surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. This medicine will block the chemical serotonin from releasing in your gut and your central nervous system. This will prevent vomiting and nausea. Prospect 2Mg Injection is available in four different forms that can be taken orally; tablet, disintegrating (dissolving) tablet, solution and film. It also comes in an IV (intravenous) form that can be injected to your body by a doctor. You can take it with food or without food.

Prospect 2Mg Injection can be used alone as well as in a combination with other medicines for preventing vomiting and nausea that one experiences after a surgery, chemotherapy or radiation session. This medicine, belonging to the drug group named antiemetics, blocks serotonin, a natural substance present in the body that is known to cause vomiting. Prospect 2Mg Injection is available both in tablet and liquid form. You can also take it in the IV form, when injected by a medical practitioner.

Your doctor must be informed if you are allergic to Prospect 2Mg Injection as well as other medications that block serotonin, along with any other allergies that you have.

In case you miss a dose, you can take the medication once you remember it. If it is already time for the next dose, ensure that you do not take two doses to make up for the missed dose.
