Serotonin Antagonists (5-HT3 Receptor Antagonists)
Although serotonin antagonists cause fewer side effects than other antinausea medicines (antiemetics), side effects can include:
- Diarrhea or constipation.
- Dizziness and headache.
- Fatigue and sleepiness.
- Muscle cramps.
Side effects from serotonin antagonist patches may also include reactions on the skin, such as redness, rash, or blisters, where the patch is placed.
