Reviews for Emend
For Nausea/Vomiting, Chemotherapy Induced "My Mother just went to pick up Emend and it was $17,000.00! Insurance doesn’t cover it! Parma and Insurance are ripping people off to the point of robbery! You people have karma of the worst kind coming!"
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."
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."
Frequently asked questions
For Nausea/Vomiting, Chemotherapy Induced "Since starting chemotherapy my dr. A specialist at victoria hospital in london has put me on emend. Thank goodness the company sponsors people like myself who would otherwise not be able to afford these 3 wonderful capsules. My nausea and vomiting still exist but far less than if I had not had the capsules available. Once again thank you merck frost."
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."
For Nausea/Vomiting, Chemotherapy Induced "I was given emend 125 during my 5th chemo session. I took Emend 125 for three days. This medicine was horrible. It gave me high blood pressure 155/85 up to 175/95. Extreme weakness, sweating on my head, high pulse rate. After nine days from my 5th chemo still feeling bad. I will never take it again."
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"
