If the patient has a mint allergy, is Ondansetron contraindicated? On the package for Ondansetron package it says it contains mint. 


The medicinal agent, ondansetron, is not contraindicated. There may be some formulations of the ODT that have flavour in them (ie. peppermint flavour) for the MINT-ONDANSETRON brand. If this is the formulation you carry and the patient tells you they are allergic or sensitive to mint, it would be reasonable to not administer this medication.
