This is not my first chemo and metoclopromide never worked for me, I have been given cyclizine and ondansetron to take half an hour before I take tablets to stop me sicking them straight up. If my chemo was short term I wouldn't bother so much, but like most of you its for as long as it works, if it works that is.
I always have to take travel pills whenever we go anywhere so maybe I am more prone to sickness than some.
I will ask for domperidone when I go back to the hospital,that's two weeks away.
Thank you for your replies, much appreciated.

Only been on this a week and have felt nausea's the whole time. Went out for a meal the other night and had to go outside and was sick. What bothers me is that I am due my next dose, how will I feel when I've taken that?. I have anti sickness tablets but they don't seem to help much. Anyone else had this problem.
I got 5 years out of this chemo with very few side effects. It was easy. I did infusion chemo because I live in USA and insurance wouldn't pay for oral at the time. Funnyface
Be interesting to hear what you have been told.
Thank you for positive thoughts - only found out today I've got to have the dreaded steroid tablets as well for first day or so, each week. Have enjoyed not taking them for 2+ years, in that I haven't had that wide awake boost in the evening and been able to sleep....Hope your friend didn't have any side effects..
