      they also have a patch for chemo you put it on 2 days prior to chemo its name is Sancuso (patch) you keep it on for 5 days.I also take compazine with it and Zofran , these are also good for naseau and vomiting. Lorazepam is generic for adavan, it is also good for nerves and nausea.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy: Edima, for nausea, works great.

    Composine, also for nausea, works ok.

    Side Effects (Hair loss (alopecia)): I have Chemotherapy 1 every 3 weeks. I am 4 treatments in.

    I have experienced nausea, vomiting, severe fatigue, weakness, dizziness. Those are just some of the side effects i incur during my 8 days after receiving my treatment, which lasts 9 hours. I also suffer from stage 4 bone cancer. My lung cancer is stage 2.

      I went through 3 days of chemo every 3rd week, then went to more when I had radiation, I had all the side effects you had plus I was passing out. Chemo is rough going. I have small cell cancer but it isn't in my lungs and I am stage 4, Liver, neck and chest. Getting ready for another round of more aggressive chemo.
      What are the symptoms of bone cancer? How much more chemo do you need? Did you loose all your hair? God bless.
