If the nausea and vomiting is ongoing and not showing any signs of easing, your wife should speak to her doctor.

Usually Tarceva is started at 150 but if the side effects are bad you can ask the oncologist to lower the dose. In my husbands case it had to be increased due to his anti seizure medications.
Make sure he does not eat 2 hours before and 1 hour after taking Tarceva. Eating can cause many of the side effects.
