Extrapyramidal reactions to ondansetron: cross-reactivity between ondansetron and prochlorperazine?

Anesth Analg. 2003 May;96(5):1374-1376. doi: 10.1213/01.ANE.0000058845.72102.F2.

Abstract

Ondansetron can rarely induce extrapyramidal reactions in susceptible individuals. Our patient had a history of drug-induced dystonic reaction; therefore, these patients may be susceptible to extrapyramidal adverse reactions after ondansetron.
