In brief: Medications
There are many medications that help with nausea and work in different ways.
For chemotherapy-associated nausea some of the best medications are the 5ht3 antagonists such as ondansetron. Other types of nausea medications can be used alone or in combination with the 5ht3 drugs for optimal nausea control.
