-it can be centrally acting or locally acting, and they have varying
degrees of effectiveness.
Mechanism of Action:

one of two ways: locally, to decrease the local response to stimuli
that are being sent to the medulla to induce vomiting, or centrally, to
directly block the CTZ or suppress the vomiting center.
