USER REVIEWS

Comment from: Ruth 55-64 Female less than 1 month Patient Published: December 18

Emend was administered via IV before chemo. I had a horrific allergic reaction. I experienced chest tightness and severe pain in my lower back. This reaction caused my blood pressure to shoot up into stroke range (100+ over 200+). I seldom experience allergic reactions to medication, so beware of this one.

Unfortunately I experienced anaphylaxis immediately when they started administering Emend. I had to be switched to Compazine, which made me very lethargic.

Treated for coloc cancer with colon resection. I started chemo and tried Phenergan for nausea with no relief. I tried Zofran and about 75% abatement, but Emend provided 100% relief of nausea. I agree thank goodness for Emend.

I used this medication for help with nausea for chemo for colon cancer. I also used it prior to the surgery to remove the tumor since being put to sleep always made me sick. I did not get sick at all after surgery and it made the chemo tolerable. The nausea was one of my minor side effects.

I am a 1 yr breast cancer survivor. I definitely recommend Emend. I would ususally have my treatment on Wed, go to work on Thu and rest on Fri,Sat,Sun and return to work on Mon. I could not have done that without Emend. I never had any nausea or vomiting episode. I had the Zofran as a backup but never used it.

Nothing short of a miracle! I have had several surgeries because of two mastectomies and breast reconstruction. I literally would throw up for hours because of the anesthesia despite Zofran and other meds. I took Emend on my last surgery and for the very first time I only had a wave of nausea that the Zofran took care of.
