What is there to do for nausea?

  1. Nausea and vomiting are common side effects from many lung cancer treatments, including several chemotherapy drugs and targeted therapies. Fortunately, there are several anti-nausea medications that can be given to patients undergoing cancer treatment to prevent nausea and vomiting, so we always encourage patients to speak with their doctors if experiencing nausea! Some patients find that complementary therapies can help ease or prevent nausea and vomiting as well; these include acupuncture, acupressure, hypnosis, and relaxation techniques.

    1. I want to share this research paper on NEPA (netupitant-palonosetron) and its efficacy in preventing chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting in lung cancer patients: It looks at two studies and finds this oral treatment and finds it a highly effective, well tolerated antiemetic for those receiving platinum-based chemotherapy.
