Aprepitant (Emend)

Aprepitant is a medication that is used to prevent and treat nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapy or surgery.

It belongs to a class of drugs known as antiemetics or more specifically substance P/neurokinin 1 (NK1) receptor antagonists. This technical term describes how aprepitant works: it blocks a specific chemical messenger (substance P) from binding to NK1 receptors in the brain. This action is crucial because substance P is involved in triggering nausea and vomiting.

Aprepitant is used primarily for two purposes. Firstly, it’s used in combination with other anti-nausea medications to prevent nausea and vomiting caused by certain types of chemotherapy that are known to have severe side effects in this regard. Secondly, it’s used to prevent nausea and vomiting after surgery. It’s not typically used for general or mild nausea and vomiting unrelated to chemotherapy or surgery.

Aprepitant is not used to treat nausea and vomiting that you already have.

Aprepitant is available as capsules that are taken orally. It’s usually administered in a specific schedule around the time of chemotherapy or surgery, often starting a day or so before treatment and continuing for a couple of days afterward.

The exact schedule, dosage, and duration of treatment will depend on the type of chemotherapy or surgery being performed.

It’s important to understand that aprepitant is a supportive care medication. It doesn’t treat cancer or perform any surgical function; rather, it helps manage some of the uncomfortable side effects associated with these treatments, making the process more tolerable.

When taking aprepitant, it’s essential to follow the prescribed dosage and your health care provider’s instructions.

In the United States, aprepitant is available under the following brand names:

  • Emend
  • Aponvie
  • Cinvanti

Common side effects associated with aprepitant may include:

  • Stomach pain
  • Stomach discomfort
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Low blood pressure
  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Heartburn
  • Hiccups
  • Coughing
  • Abnormal liver function tests
  • Dehydration
  • Feeling weak or tired.
  • Loss of appetite

More serious side effects which should be reported to your healthcare provider immediately may include:

  • Hives
  • Rash
  • Itching
  • Skin peeling or blisters
  • Difficulty breathing or swallowing
  • Fast or slow heart rate

The above lists of possible side effects associated with aprepitant are not exhaustive and other side effects may occur. If you experience any severe or persistent side effects while taking aprepitant, it is important to contact your healthcare provider right away.
