Ondem is an antiemetic drug that belongs to the class serotonin 5-hydroxytryptamine type 3 (5-HT3) receptor antagonist. Ondem is the brand name of Ondansetron. Ondem is effective in the treatment of nausea and vomiting caused by cytotoxic chemotherapy drugs and has reported anxiolytic and neuroleptic properties.

There are some side effects reported with the use of Ondem in pregnant women. The reproduction studies have been performed in pregnant rats and rabbits at intravenous (I.V.) doses of 4 mg/kg per day and have shown no evidence of impaired fertility or harm to the fetus due to ondansetron.
