    I receive Decadron and Aloxi for prevention of nausea and vomiting and it has worked extremely well for me. I have not experienced any nausea or vomiting and have just finished my third treatment (I'm three weeks on, one week off) so far with this session of chemo. This is my fourth diagnosis with breast cancer and and my fourth time on chemo in ten years (it's been seven years since my last diagnosis). The Aloxi seems to be a wonderful preventative for nausea! I highly recommend it!

    Six hours after receiving Aloxi injection, experienced horrible headache that near migraine level. I have had a couple of migraines in my life but not a chronic problem. Had to use ice pack alternatively with heat to get relief and my pain pills did nothing (percoset) for relief. 48 hours after dosing, was given Fioriset to help control pain. Didn't have nausea from the chemo but did from the migraine. Dr. will try something different next infusion.

    Had a slight but annoying headache for the entire 24 hrs that this drug lasted in me. No nausea or vomiting but i will stick with other anti- emetics next chemo round.

    70-year-old female receiving Cisplatin and Gemzar for high grade, aggressive bladder cancer. Cisplatin is known for strongly producing nausea/vomiting within 2 hours of infusion. Given dexamethasone pills, Emend pill, and IV palonosetron (Aloxi) IV before chemo drug infusions. No nausea or vomiting on chemo day. I do need to use Emend, dexamethasone, Zofran, Compazine, and Xanax to control nausea on other days. Also use Colace and Senokot as needed to resolve constipation caused by chemo and anti-nausea drugs. Recommend Aloxi highly. Oh, another comment: someone said they were told that the anti-nausea effects of Aloxi last for a week. That is not so. Aloxi can only be given once a week.

    Prior to R-CHOP chemotherapy treatment for Stage 1, B-Cell, Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, I receive I.V. premeds that include Aloxi, Emend, Benadryl, Decatron, and Tylenol. After four of six planned sessions, each being three weeks apart, I have had no significant nausea reactions, neither during, immediately following, nor in the weeks following chemotherapy. I credit this to the complete combination of drugs, and to dedicated medical care from my oncologist.
