Experience nausea with actinomycin-d treatment, those who do receive considerable relief with the use of 5ht3 antagonists like granisetron, ondansetron, etc. I try hard not to presuppose how a patient will react to a given treatment. We use preemptive 5ht3 antagonists before most types of chemotherapy, and its been my experience that they control nausea well. I hope this will be true for you!
