Nausea treatment: Prevention is the best. Be proactive, and dont wait until you start vomiting. There are many wonderful treatment available to help nausea- eg- ondansetron ( for acute emesis) , emend for delayed emesis), also other medication such as Decadron ( really good for nausea), compazine, (prochlorperazine) kytril. For anticipatory nausea- Ativan works very well. Combination likely be needed. Discuss with your oncologist.

Your oncologist!: I assume you have an oncologist; almost everyone who is receiving chemotherapy does. They are most familiar not just with the chemotherapy you are receiving, but also with you! They can give you the best advice and treatment for your nausea. I hope your therapy is working well!
