Anzemet, which is generically known as Dolasetron, used to treat symptoms of chemotrherapy such as nausea and vomiting, which is known as Chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV). Anzemet is a seotonin 5-HT3 receptor antagonist. The drug is a long-lasting drug and an individual dose will last for about four to nine hours. The most serious Anzemet adverse effect is its propensity to increase the risk of developing a potentially fatal abnormal heart rhythm called Torsade de pointes.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issed warnings about Anzemet. These warnings have suggested a stoppage to the usage of Anzemet for both children and adults who suffer from CINV. Even though most of the side effects of Anzemet are rather benign, the serious ones, like Torsade de pointes, are so severe that they outweigh the drug's general efficacy.

Torsdade de pointes means “twisting of the points” in French. It is a rather uncommon variety of  ventricular tachycardia.  It derived its name from its capacity to create an illusion of the QRS complex twisting around the isoelectric baseline.  This condition can be fatal is it degenerates into ventricular fibrillation.

If you of a loved one has been injured as a result of taking Anzemet, you might be entitled to compensation. An Anzemet law firm can engage in dagerous drug litigation to ensure that you receive compensation for damages.
