Overdosage
Contraindications

OVERDOSE

There is no specific information on the treatment of overdosage with fosaprepitant or aprepitant.

In the event of overdose, EMEND should be discontinued and general supportive treatment and monitoring should be provided. Because of the antiemetic activity of EMEND, drug-induced emesis may not be effective in cases of EMEND overdosage.

Aprepitant is not removed by hemodialysis.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

EMEND is contraindicated in patients:

  • who are hypersensitive to any component of the product. Hypersensitivity reactions including anaphylactic reactions, flushing, erythema, and dyspnea have been reported [see ADVERSE REACTIONS].
  • taking pimozide. Inhibition of CYP3A4 by aprepitant, the active moiety, could result in elevated plasma concentrations of this drug, which is a CYP3A4 substrate, potentially causing serious or life-threatening reactions, such as QT prolongation, a known adverse reaction of pimozide [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS].
This monograph has been modified to include the generic and brand name in many instances.
