Emend (aprepitant) for Nausea/Vomiting, Postoperative: “I was given Emend prior to double mastectomy. I was nauseated until that same evening when I asked to be switched to Gravol (Canada). A doctor tried me again today on Emend and I feel really sick on it. Not for me I guess. Hope something will work once I start chemo”

“I was offered aprepitant sample (2 pills) from my gastro specialist about 3 years ago. Was not enough to make the decision but it did help then. This was 3-4 years ago. I have been unable to afford this particular medicine and my doctor has appealed it to my insurance company numerous times without success. I have gastroperious,. I have done everything possible to help this condition out- stimulator(3), surgery, port (which I have had to have removed for bacteria in my blood. Now I find myself needing a medicine that may benefit my life. Is there anything that you know that may help me get this medicine. I have been through every type but not having a port or similar to this, I am lost. Thank you for listening. ”

Emend (aprepitant) for Nausea/Vomiting, Chemotherapy Induced: “My son was prescribed Emend for his fourth round of chemotherapy after having severe nausea after the third round. He had a three day course this past Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and tonight Saturday he is out with his friends. He has eaten a healthy meal every day of his chemotherapy and has just been a little extra tired. What a difference? Thank you Emend.”

Emend (aprepitant) for Nausea/Vomiting, Chemotherapy Induced: “Emend is a wonder-drug. I'm having chemotherapy and have not vomited once. In fact, I've only experienced intermittent waves of nausea that lasted for brief periods of time. My oncologist said to take it "before your feet hit the floor," and he was right. Cancer patients: Insist on having it.”

Emend (aprepitant) for Nausea/Vomiting, Chemotherapy Induced: “Hello My husband was recently diagnosed with lung cancer, which quickly metastasized to the brain and liver. He started his first chemotherapy session yesterday. I was very happy that the hospital included EMEND in his regimen. I had taken an EMEND pill for a surgery because I always get nauseated after sedation. This drug is amazing! Thank you for all the good work you do. Cancer is such a heartbreaking disease and to eliminate nausea and vomiting from the side effects is truly such a blessing. Thank you to all the scientists and researchers trying to make a better life for those battling cancer.”
