Medical Advisory on DimenHYDRINATE (Gravol) for Patients 65 and Older

27 February 2023

Ondansetron (Zofran) is the preferred medication over dimenHYDRINATE (Gravol) to treat nausea / vomiting in patients 65 and older. Paramedics can consult (patch) a Base Hospital Physician (BHP) if they believe an antiemetic is indicated for patients 65 and older and ondansetron is not available.

Paramedics should read Medical Advisory DimenHYDRINATE (Gravol) for Patients 65 and Older. If you have any questions, please contact
