Granisetron Transdermal Information

Granisetron transdermal (Sancuso®) is a prescription medication that comes in the form of a patch. It is approved to help prevent nausea and vomiting due to certain chemotherapy regimens lasting no longer than five days.
 
There is only one standard dosage of this product: one patch applied to the upper outer arm 24 to 48 hours before beginning chemotherapy treatment. This patch is left on until at least 24 hours after the chemotherapy regimen has ended, but not for more than seven days total.
 
Although most people tolerate this drug well, it is not appropriate for everyone. Make sure your healthcare provider has complete information on your medical history and what medications you are taking before starting treatment with granisetron transdermal.
