Hi this is a medication that is normally used to treat or prevent cancer, do you have cancer? The drug information lists quite a lot of side effects but this isn't to say that you will experience them. One thing i would bear in mind is that this med can cause headaches which isn't great if you are already experiencing them. I don't understand your question about travelling? Could you be more specific? I assume you know that this medication is given slowly (often during 3 hours) by i/v injection, so your healthcare provider will administer it. It is a drug that can cause nausea so you may be given something to counteract these affects. You should have a break in between treatment courses of about 6 weeks so if you do experience nausea or some side effects, you will likely be free of them for some time between the treatments. I hope this has helped answer your question? If i have misread something or you want to reply about what i have written please feel free.
