Vontrol is an antiemetic agent used in the treatment of vomiting and vertigo. Vontrol overdose may result in serious toxicity in children.

Vontrol - Pharmacology:

The mechanism by which diphenidol exerts its antiemetic and antivertigo effects is not precisely known. It is thought to diminish vestibular stimulation and depress labyrinthine function. An action on the medullary chemoreceptive trigger zone may also be involved in the antiemetic effect. Vontrol has no significant sedative, tranquilizing, or antihistaminic action. It has a weak peripheral anticholinergic effect.

Vontrol Interactions

CNS depression–producing medications - concurrent use may potentiate the effects of either these medications or diphenidol; anticholinergics or other medications with anticholinergic activity - anticholinergic effects may be potentiated when these medications are used concurrently with diphenidol; apomorphine - prior ingestion of diphenidol may decrease the emetic response to apomorphine in the treatment of poisoning.

Vontrol Contraindications

Anuria - renal shutdown may increase risk of systemic accumulation of diphenidol.
