CAS Code


Characteristic of the substance Granisetron

Granisetron hydrochloride is a white powder. Soluble in aqueous or saline solutions at 20 ° C. Molecular weight 348.9.


Pharmacological action - antiemetic, serotonergic.

Selectively blocks serotonin 5-HT3 receptors located in the endings of the vagus nerve and in the trigger zone of the bottom of the IV ventricle of the brain (practically does not affect other receptors of serotonin). Well absorbed in the digestive tract (if there is no vomiting). It binds to plasma proteins by 65%. In the liver it undergoes N-demethylation and oxidation of the aromatic ring, after which it is conjugated. The resulting metabolites have antiserotonin activity. T1 / 2 for oral and intravenous administration is 9 hours, with a wide individual variability. The main way of excretion is with bile, about 12% (after intravenous administration) is excreted in the urine within 48 hours. Eliminates the vomiting that occurs when the parasympathetic nervous system is excited due to the release of serotonin from enterochromaffin cells.

Application of substance Granisetron

Nausea, vomiting (symptomatic therapy and prevention in the treatment of cytostatics and radiation therapy, after surgery).


Hypersensitivity, breast-feeding.

Restrictions on the use

Partial intestinal obstruction (weakens the motor of the distal colon), pregnancy; Children under 12 years (for tablets), up to 2 years (for injection forms) - efficacy and safety of use not established.

Application in pregnancy and lactation

The action category for fetus by FDA is B.

For the duration of treatment, breastfeeding should be discontinued (no data on penetration into breast milk).

Side effects of Granisetron

On the part of the intestine: pain in the abdomen, constipation or diarrhea, flatulence, increased activity of liver transaminases (ALT, AST), indigestion; Rarely - heartburn, a change in taste.

From the nervous system: headache, insomnia, drowsiness, excessive fatigue or weakness; Rarely - anxiety, restlessness, dizziness.

From the cardiovascular system: arrhythmia, chest pain, decrease or increase in blood pressure.

Allergic reactions: skin rash, hyperthermia, bronchospasm, urticaria, itching; Rarely - hypersensitivity reactions.

Other: very rarely - flu-like syndrome.


Pharmaceutically incompatible with other drugs. Granisetron does not affect the activity of CYP3A4 isoenzymes of cytochrome P450 (responsible for the metabolism of some narcotic analgesics). The efficacy of granisetron may be enhanced by IV administration of dexamethasone (8-20 mg) before chemotherapy begins. Special studies on the interaction with funds for general anesthesia have not been carried out, but granisetron is well tolerated with simultaneous prescription with similar drugs and narcotic analgesics. When induction of hepatic enzymes with phenobarbital, an increase in the clearance of granisetron (with iv introduction) was observed by about a quarter. There was no interaction with simultaneous administration with benzodiazepines, antiulcer drugs and other cytotoxic drugs that cause vomiting.


Symptoms: The use of 38 mg of granisetron in the form of a single intravenous injection was not accompanied by the development of serious adverse effects other than mild headache.

Treatment: symptomatic therapy. Specific antidote is not known.

Routes of administration

IV, inside.

Precautions for the substance Granisetron

Since granisetron may reduce intestinal motility, patients with signs of partial obstruction of the intestine after administration of the drug should be under the supervision of a physician.

During treatment, it is necessary to monitor the activity of ALT and AST.

For the treatment and prevention of postoperative nausea and vomiting in children is not applied.
