Do not use Sancuso if you are allergic to granisetron or any of the other ingredients in Sancuso. Tell your healthcare professional if you are pregnant, if you plan to become pregnant, or you are breastfeeding.

Skin reactions can happen just at the patch application site or outside the patch application site. Tell your healthcare professional if you get any redness, rashes, bumps, blisters or itching at the patch application site, and especially if they spread outside the place where the patch was or if they appear outside the patch application site. You may need to stop using Sancuso. Tell your healthcare professional about all the medicines you take, including prescription and nonprescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements. Other medicines may affect how Sancuso works. Sancuso may also affect how your other medicines work. Do not apply any heat source over or near the Sancuso patch. For example, a heating pad or heat lamp should not be used where the patch is applied.

The medicine in Sancuso (granisetron) may not work well and/or may affect your skin if exposed to direct sunlight and the light from sunlamps or tanning beds.
While wearing the patch keep it covered with clothing if you will be in sunlight or near a sunlamp, including tanning beds. Keep the skin where Sancuso was applied covered for another 10 days after the patch is taken off to protect from exposure to direct sunlight. You may see mild redness on the skin where the patch is removed. This redness should go away within three days. If redness continues, tell your healthcare professional. The most common side effect of Sancuso is constipation. This is not the only possible side effect of Sancuso.
