Is there an equivalent medication for ondansetron ODT 8MG.

Customer Question

Is there an equivalent medication for ondansetron ODT 8MG. My husband is suffering from chronic nausea and the insurance will only pay for 18 tablets every 30 days.
JA: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications? Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: My husband takes several medications for CHF, renal failure, type II diabetes, had his gall bladder removed in Oct. 2015 at which point carcinoid tumors were discovered. 41 " of his small intestine and a mesenteric lymph node were removed. In Oct. of 2016 he underwent surgery for 4 abdominal surgeries and the nausea he has experienced this entire year has now become chronic. He is allergic to endocin and altace as well as CT scan dye. If you would like a list of medications, I can provide that, but I seriously must find a solution to this chronic nausea.
