Medically, it was formerly used as an emetic and expectorant, to produce sweating, and in the treatment of several diseases, but had frequent toxic side effects.

Writing in the journal The Lancet, Professor Warren and his colleagues say that the king was given an 'emetic tartar' medicine made from antimony, which is known to have been contaminated with relatively high levels of arsenic.

Patients were then monitored for 24 hours for timing and number of emetic episodes, time to administration of escape anti-emetic medication, severity of nausea, and safety.
The rates of complete response, defined as no emetic episodes and no use of escape anti-emetic medication in the 24-hour observation period, were 54% and 47% in the 1.8 and 2.4 mg/kg dolasetron groups, respectively, and 48% in the granisetron group, according to Dr. B.
For complete plus major response, defined as two or fewer emetic episodes and no use of escape medication, rates were 62% for both the 1.8 and 2.4 mg/kg dolasetron groups and 63% for the granisetron group.

Suboptimal doses (administered as monotherapy, which reduced vomiting and retching by >50% compared to control ferrets but did not result in complete protection) of each compound alone and in combination (0.3, 0.1, and 0.03 mg/kg) were administered 25 minutes prior to injection with cisplatin (10 mg/kg, IP).
Normal behaviors (eating, drinking, urination, defecation), emetic events (vomits, retches), and peri-emetic events (excessive mouth licking, burrowing, eye squinting, backward walking, and body scratching) were recorded temporally.
Results: Analysis of emetic events demonstrated the combination of ondansetron and casopitant mesylate resulted in significantly fewer events than either agent alone.
