Has anyone had any success with taking Kytril to reduce nausea while undergoing chemotherapy treatments?

I am a Breast Cancer Survior! I can not recall taking Kytril to reduce nausea. Try some Ginger Tea! Its suppose to relax the stomach and with nausea. I did suffer with nausea to the point that I could not get up out of bed. It will get better. Don't let it get you down. Fight all you got to move on. I hope this may work with you while your going thru CHEMO. Best of luck! Let GOD be your guide you! Answered by Jazmin Leggette 4 months ago.
I had HUGE success with Kytril. If I remember it is a 12 hour pill, so that with Compazine worked really well for me. I had some nausea, but never threw up. Kyril took that crappy feeling away, thank God. I know that Kytril is pretty expensive, so my clinic ended up giving me free sample boxes. Good luck! Let me know if you have other questions. P.S. I am a breast cancer survivor of 2 and a half years. Answered by Delores Corry 4 months ago.

I have fifty tablets of Kytril 1 mg. which is an anti-nausea drug used for chemo patients. It is an extremely expensive drug (the 50 tablets are worth $2700.

Ordered:Kytril 1 mg po bid?
The mount to administer is label is 2mg/10mL in a 30mL bottle
Asked by Gaylene Blindt 4 months ago.
The order is for 1 mg PO BID. The drug is supplied in 2 mg per 10 ml. Therefore, dividing 10 ml by 2 mg = 1 mg per 5 ml. You would therefore administer 5 ml of the liquid, and there are 6 doses in the bottle. The BID means that this dose would be given twice daily. You would want to arrange for this dose to be taken approximately 12 hours apart. Answered by Robin Dorey 4 months ago.
Can you please help me calculate the drip rate in micro drops/min (15 gtt/ml)?
kytril (granisetron HCI) 1mg in 50cc of D5W over 15 min was ordered for mrs. wynn. can you please show me and help me set this up to get the answer? thank you so much!
Asked by Pilar Renfrew 4 months ago.
1cc = 1ml 50ml / 15min = 3.3ml/min (3.3ml/min) * (15gtt/ml) cancel the ml and left with gtt/min 49.5 or 50gtts/min Just so you realize, a micro drip set is 60gtts/ml. A standard set is 15gtts/ml. Answered by Natisha Leech 4 months ago.
Low immune system?
I have a low immune system and ive had Glandula fever and hepatitis B when i was younger. I was put on Vitamin C tablets and imune tonic tablets but i still feel nauseous every day the docter said that my body is still exhuasted. Is there anything to get rid of my nausia
Asked by Vena Hoogland 4 months ago.
Compazine, Kytril and Zofran are known to treat nausea, but I believe they are still by prescription only. You may want to discuss these options as well as motion sickness meds with your doctor to counteract the nausea. Good luck. Answered by Stanton Shinholster 4 months ago.
you should eat fruits which contain vitamin c like orange, mango, lemon juice. believe me it works better than those pills. you can also take ginseng pills, they works as rejuvenator. Answered by Korey Rissler 4 months ago.

I've never experienced nausea from chemo, but what was surprisingly effective when I had morning sickness was ginger beer (or ginger ale) - but it has to be the stuff with real ginger extract rather than artificial flavouring. Acupuncture can also be very effective - I've had it for anxiety and irritable bowel syndrome, so I'm guessing it could work for chronic nausea too. Answered by Danae Tudor 4 months ago.

You can listen to the "doctor" who probably has a vested interest in getting you to spend your money on herbs and supplements, or you can go to a different real doctor and get a second opinion. Amodium AD (pills, not liquid) always helped me. Answered by Gita Nunziata 4 months ago.

She should be on anti-nausea meds such as Zophran, Kytril, or Ativan to name just a few, until she feels better. Otherwise she shouldn't worry about eating until she feels better. Chemo is usually given in cycles . . so when she is not on the chemotherapy that is when she should concentrate on eating well. During treatment she should eat whatever is appealing to her whenever she feels okay. Otherwise don't worry about it. Answered by Florentina Wasmus 4 months ago.
My uncle has started chemo and radiation..he lost so much weight-80lbs-and could not eat and it really almost killed him-so he is on nausia meds and an appetite stimulant-he is now eating but has to be careful-he does well with yogurt and the old standard chicken noodle soup...he can't have salt though. B/c he wasn't eating and his health just deteriorated so quickly-they have actually put off anymore treatments-which is like a double edge sword-till he gains some weight and gets some strength back. It is important that she eat something- milkshakes, ice cream maybe...my uncles mouth is always dry too-so he likes the milkshakes... Answered by Stacie Christesen 4 months ago.
When I went through it, I could only take in things that were very bland, hardly any flavor. Meat was about impossible. I couldn't handle much fat. Dried toast went down, but I ate very slow.

Asked by Rusty Neally 4 months ago.
Dear Worried One, I am an oncology certified registered nurse, and would like to answer your question. There are some very good anti-nausea medications such as Kytril, Anzemet, Zofran, and Aloxi specifically for chemotherapy related nausea. You will most likely not have nausea during the infusion of the chemotherapy, but the nause may happen after the treatment and could continue for a couple of days. Your doctor will most likely order an antinausea medication be given intraveneously just before you are given the chemo. This is to prevent nausea the same day of chemo administration. Then your doctor will give you a prescription for an anti-nausea med to take at home. If one does not work, call your physician and ask for another one. Sometimes high anxiety or dread of the treatment can cause nausea even before the chemo starts. If this happens to you, your doctor can precribe an anti-anxiety medication. As one of the respondants indicated, marijuana is also a good antiemetic. There is a legal pill form that can be prescribed by your physician, but it is very expensive. It you have insurance, maybe it would be covered. The gentlemen who wrote a book about the evils of chemotherapy and the virtues of raw vegetables is misinformed. He is very correct about the importance of a good diet to help your body recover, but he does not understand the priciples of how chemotherapy works. Chemotherapy is not one drug, but many, and each type chemo approaches the cancer from a different angle. If one does not work, your doctor may try another one. Some chemo drugs stop the cancer by interfering with their cell division. Other newer drugs like Avastin specifically target the blood supply to the tumor, shrinking the blood vessels which in turn, causes the turmor to shrink. No treatment promises a cure. A better way to think about cancer is to think of it as a condition that you will fight and attempt to control with medication, diet, exercise, and faith, even if it turns out that your particular cancer is not cureable. (Many other conditions are not cureable, but people live with them....diabetes, epilepsy, hypertension, heart failure). Also, there are many different kinds of treatments available now with more in development. My best advice to you is to: 1. Follow your oncologist's plan of treatment...he has only your best interest in mind and is qualified to decide the best course of treatment for you. 2. Minimize stress in your life (stress suppresses the immune system). 3. Eat small, frequent meals and include a nutritional supplement to give your body plenty of fuel to fight the disease. (Prosure is one nutritional supplement specifically for cancer patients). 4. Don't isolate yourself from family and friends. You need them now more than ever. Spend time with the ones you love, and go places you have always wanted to go. 5. Finally, pray and believe that God is in control of your life and that whatever happens will be His will for you. God bless you. Answered by Trinidad Zechman 4 months ago.
Hello, I am so sorry to hear about your situation, but you will get through it, take one day at a time. I have had chemo for the past year and my nausea was UNCONTROLLABLE until they gave me IV meds through my port. Here are some to ask your doctor about (everyone is different, this is just so you have the names): 1.) Emend (NEW: a series of 3 pills, taken PRIOR to starting chemo) 2.) Reglan 3.) Zofran (gives me a really bad headache if I take them too close) 4.) Phenegran (Spelling? I was allergic to that one:) 5.) The marijuana pill : Marinol 6.) Ativan, this also helps to calm you down It is important to keep hydrated prior to chemo. These were just some that I've taken over time, yours may not be that bad, but that way you have the names in case some don't work. Good luck...you'll get through this!!! Take care. Answered by Emil Mckelvy 4 months ago.
Do not worry. This side effect varies with different people. About 75% of patient can be relieved of these side effect by using modern anti-emetics (anti vomiting). Common drugs causing N&V are platinum analogues an doxorubicin. The dose of the anti-emetic will be adjusted to match that the dose of chemo (by the physician of course). Just tell him if treatment works or not so he can adjust it accordinly. Alternative medicine also works i.e. acupuncture needle positioned at point P6. If it does not go as mentioned above, you can question again on the net. We'll take it from there Well hear from you soon and all the best. Answered by Irish Comegys 4 months ago.
I am a chemo RN and give chemotherapy on a regular basis. I think you would benefit from hydrating yourself before you go to the appointment. Start working on drinking extra fluids a couple of days before the appointment and make your calories count, drink milk or juice or something with some calories in it, For example, drink a whole glass of orange juice with your medicine. and drink 2 full glasses of milk or juice with every meal. Keep somthing to drink available all of the time and sip. The nurse giving your chemotherapy will be giving you something for nausea, which should keep you from feeling like your going to vomit your socks off for 24 hrs after the chemo. Also, your physician will be prescribing you nausea medication for home use. Now days, Oncolgist are very aggresive at treating the symptoms associated with chemotherapy. Good luck. Answered by Ali Lamberth 4 months ago.
I think you should ask your doctors that question and perhaps you have in order to get good advise on what can be prescribed for you. My heart tells me to also express to you my prayers and sincere hope that the chemo doesn't cause you too much distress. Your Yahoo friends are with you so think about the people who care about you and all things good and sweet in life so you will be distracted from the effects of chemo. Be strong and know others are there for you. Here's a big hug for you. Answered by Analisa Harlston 4 months ago.
get plenty of sleep, be well hydrated, chemo is very dehydrating. but know that they have very good medications now to prevent the nausea. although, it's different for each person, and it depends on the chemo agent, many people go through without the horrible nausea typically associated with it. Take care, and I hope it's a swift and effective treatment for you. Answered by Viki Malagisi 4 months ago.
Try ginger, also take B12 and B6. But, be careful taking anti oxidents in pill form. Ask some of the nurses who will give you the Chemo what you should take. They are a good source of information. Good luck. Answered by Kaleigh Monico 4 months ago.
