Reply To: Maropitant vs Ondansetron

Sybil Dryburgh

In hospitalised patients where they have a lot of V+ such as the pancreatitis cases, I have had better success with ondansetron than maropitant BUT they are likely to already have maropitant on board. I have not tried just ondansetron on its own. Is using them both maybe more effective than just one or the other?? Should we consider using all 3 medications to cover all bases in the very sick cases?
