Emetrol

Emetrol is the brand name of an over-the-counter antiemetic medicine taken to relieve nausea and vomiting. It is a mixture of glucose, fructose, and phosphoric acid, and comes in syrup form.

Each dose (5mL) contains 1.87g of glucose, 1.87g of fructose and 21.5mg of phosphoric acid. The inactive ingredients are FD&C red No. 40, flavors, glycerin, methylparaben, and purified water.

Since Emetrol contains fructose it should not be taken by anyone with hereditary fructose intolerance (HFI). Diabetics should speak with a doctor before taking this medication.


Reference: Pfizer-Emetrol

It should not be taken for more than one hour (5 doses) without consulting a physician. If upset stomach continues or recurs frequently, consult a physician.

For maximum effectiveness, never dilute the medicine or drink fluids of any kind immediately before or after taking.
