I began my first cycle of Folfirinox on 9/10/19. I was given Emend IV and Aloxi prior to the chemo.
I expected to suffer nausea and vomiting.
I have not
Does emend work for longer than one day?
Thanks for your post.
I’m glad to hear you’ve not suffered nausea and vomiting. This information tells you a little more about Emend. You’ll see from this, it can have an effect for several days.
Some people are more likely to have nausea/vomiting as treatment goes on. However some people don’t get nausea or vomiting at all.
I hope this is helpful.
