How Does It Work?

Nausea and vomiting are complex processes involving many chemicals in the body and several parts of the body, including the brain and the small intestine. It is likely that ondansetron oral soluble film works in the small intestine.
 
However, ondansetron oral soluble film may also work in the brain by blocking serotonin, a chemical produced by the body that is associated with nausea and vomiting. Serotonin has many effects in the body and has several receptors where it can bind. Ondansetron oral soluble film blocks serotonin at a specific type of receptor (the 5-HT3 receptor).
