Hey Eva and Adrienne.... when my sis could not stop heaving.... sorry for the picture of that! Anyway she could not keep ANYTHING down. When she visited MD Anderson in Houston, they had this concoction the pharmacy made for her in suppository form... it was called ABH.... it consisted of Ativan, Benedryl and (I think) Hydrazine. The pharmacy at MD Anderson is really good about faxing the ingredients to any pharmacy or doctor who might be interested. The suppositories were WONDERFUL for my sis. The one moment I still remember with tears and a big smile is when my sis woke ME up one morning in a hotel on our the drive back from Texas to Illinois with a big smile on her face and a "I didn't throw up!" comment. Funny how those moments years ago would have nauseated me. But we were so happy we hugged and danced around the room. One note of caution... it's POTENT! After a couple usages it can really knock you out and one side effect is slurred speech (like you're drunk). But it is a great thing to take to finally stop the nausea and vomiting to give the tummy a break. My sis only took it when she desperately needed it. I think just knowing there is something else to take that WILL help is half the battle sometimes. Just wanted to let you both know. My best to all! Love, Barbara K
