Brief Answer:
Category B drug

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.
No need to worry.
Emset contains ondansetron. Which belongs to category B drug in pregnancy.
Means animal studies shown no adverse effects on the fetus but human studies are lacking.
As you took only one tablet that may not cause any major problem.
Taking the tablet either before or after food may not have much influence on its efficacy.
