Sherrie has taken many things but, the last thing she took that worked was Kytril, taken every 12 hours. It is also possible to take other drugs for breakthrough nausea at the same time ( ask your Dr. ).

We just could not catch a break, Sherrie was sick all the time. we later figured out that it was positional and most likely due to her tumors against her stomach. This drug did help her 90% of the time.

It is possible to take various nausea drugs and also some neurological drugs ( such as Ativan ) which in some cases can block pathways used to communicate the nausea.....I do NOT know alot about this but, it does work in some cases I am told.

Best of luck, thoughts and prayers, Michael-PA
