Future Perspective

Vomiting will be with us forever. It is up to the clinician who is face-to-face with the child to determine a diagnosis and therapeutic plan. The use of the 5HT3 antagonists, especially the dissolving forms, have made antiemetic treatment in children safer and more effective. As these drugs are replaced by cheaper, generic forms, more children will be managed as outpatients, to the benefit of all.
