Anzemet for Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy is associated with a number of unpleasant side effects, including nausea and vomiting. One of the drugs used to prevent nausea and vomiting due to chemotherapy is Anzemet® (dolasetron mesylate). This product comes in tablet form and is usually taken one hour before chemotherapy.
 
In clinical studies, up to 73 percent of people taking Anzemet experienced no vomiting due to chemotherapy. The medicine also decreased the severity of nausea.
