What is Emend?

Emend is used in adults and children to prevent nausea and vomiting caused by cancer chemotherapy. Aprepitant is also used (only in adults) to prevent nausea and vomiting that may be caused by surgery.

Emend is given ahead of time and will not treat nausea or vomiting that you already have.

Emend capsules are for use in adults and children who are at least 12 years old. The oral suspension (liquid) can be given to adults and children as young as 6 months old.

Important information

You should not take Emend if you also take pimozide. A serious drug interaction can occur when pimozide is used together with aprepitant.

If you have liver disease, you may need a dose adjustment or special tests.

Emend can make birth control pills less effective, resulting in pregnancy. This effect can last for up to 28 days after your last dose of this medication. Ask your doctor about using a non-hormone method of birth control (such as a condom, diaphragm, spermicide) to prevent pregnancy while taking Emend and for at least 1 month after your treatment ends.

There are many other drugs that can interact with Emend. Tell your doctor about all medications you use. This includes prescription, over-the-counter, vitamin, and herbal products. Do not start a new medication without telling your doctor. Keep a list of all your medicines and show it to any healthcare provider who treats you.

Before taking this medicine

You should not use aprepitant if you are allergic to aprepitant, or if you take another medicine called pimozide (Orap). Emend can cause unwanted or dangerous effects when used with pimozide.

To make sure Emend is safe for you, tell your doctor if you have:

  • liver disease.

It is not known whether this medicine will harm an unborn baby. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant.

Emend can make birth control pills less effective. Ask your doctor about using a non-hormonal birth control (condom, diaphragm with spermicide) to prevent pregnancy while using Emend, and for 1 month after your last dose.

It is not known whether aprepitant passes into breast milk or if it could harm a nursing baby. Tell your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby.

How should I take Emend?

Take Emend exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Follow all directions on your prescription label. Do not take this medicine in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended.

Emend is not for long-term use. For use in chemotherapy, you will most likely need only 3 separate doses. When used before surgery, you will likely receive only 1 dose.

You may also be given other medicines with Emend to further help prevent nausea and vomiting.

Read all patient information, medication guides, and instruction sheets provided to you. Ask your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions.

Emend can be taken with or without food. If you take this medicine before surgery, follow your doctor’s instructions about any restrictions on food or beverages.

Do not crush, chew, break, or open an Emend capsule. Swallow the capsule whole.

Give the oral suspension (liquid) using only the dosing syringe provided.

Do not share this medicine with another person. This medicine should not be used to treat general nausea that is unrelated to chemotherapy or surgery.

If you also take warfarin (Coumadin, Jantoven), you may need extra “INR” or prothrombin time tests after you have taken Emend.

Store the capsules at room temperature away from moisture and heat.

Store the prefilled liquid dosing syringe in the refrigerator, do not freeze. After taking the liquid out of the refrigerator, you must use it within 3 hours.

Throw away any liquid medicine not used within 3 days (72 hours) after you received it. Do not save it for later use.

What other drugs will affect Emend?

Sometimes it is not safe to use certain medications at the same time. Some drugs can affect your blood levels of other drugs you take, which may increase side effects or make the medications less effective.

Many drugs can interact with aprepitant, and some drugs should not be used together. This includes prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal products. Not all possible interactions are listed in this medication guide. Tell your doctor about all medicines you use, and those you start or stop using during your treatment with Emend. Give a list of all your medicines to any healthcare provider who treats you.

Follow the following prescription medicine precautions :

  Receiving Emend while pregnant may indirectly harm the baby by causing side effects in the woman. Take proper medical help in case you are pregnant, may be pregnant or planning to become pregnant in the near future. Health care providers may suggest inducing labor early to protect the baby from cancer treatment.
  You should not be taken Emend , if you are breast-feeding or plan to breast-feed. This is because the drugs could be passed to your baby through breast milk. As Emend may cause serious side effects in a breast-fed baby, talk to your doctor about whether you should continue breast-feeding.
  Your doctor will do regular blood tests to check for side effects of Emend. It is also important to check your levels of blood cells and other substances in the blood.
  Before taking this medicine, tell your doctor and pharmacist if you are allergic to Emend , any other medications, or any of the ingredients in this cancer medicine. This medication is not recommended for use in patients with a known allergy to Emend.
  If you take  Emend , you must stop drinking alcohol. This is one of the ways to prevent this disease from getting worse. If you are dependent on alcohol and want to stop drinking, your doctor can recommend a therapy that’s tailored for your needs.
  If you use other prescription drugs or over the counter products at the same time, the effects of this cancer medicine may change. Tell your doctor about all the drugs, vitamins, and herbal supplements you are using, so that your pharmacist can help you prevent or manage drug interactions.
  More than 80% of patients occasionally miss a dose of their medication. Missing a dose of Emend can upset your treatment plan. If you miss a dose, contact your health care provider or pharmacist immediately to establish a new dosing schedule. Be careful not to take doses too close together because you might get side effects. Don’t double your next dose to “make up” for the one you missed.
  After the expiry date, medicines may not be safe or lose some or all of their effectiveness. You should not take Emend after their expiry date. If you’ve had a medicine for a while, check the expiry date before using it. If it has expired or is damaged, return it to your pharmacist for disposal.
  During your treatment with Emend, it is very important for your doctor to know about your medical history if you have Kidney problems, hepatitis B, liver problems, HIV (human immunodeficiency virus), triglycerides, diabetes or other health problems.
