Make Sure Antiemetics Are Available for On-Time Administration
The new drug rolapitant (Varubi) will put focus on "antiemetics" used to prevent chemo-induced nausea and vomiting.
Think of rolapitant as similar to oral aprepitant and IV fosaprepitant. These meds help boost the efficacy of "-tron" antiemetics...granisetron, ondansetron, etc.
The key to combating nausea and vomiting with chemo is combining meds from different drug classes...and timing them right.
