Suggested default antiemetics have been added to the treatment schedule, and may be substituted to reflect institutional policy.
Note: On days 8 and 15, no antiemetics should be routinely administered before treatment in patients without a history of nausea and vomiting. If patients experience nausea and/or vomiting, consider using the low antiemetic prophylaxis regimen.
Ensure that patients also have sufficient antiemetics for breakthrough emesis:
Metoclopramide 10 mg three times a day when necessary (maximum of 30 mg/24 hours, up to 5 days) OR
Prochlorperazine 10 mg PO every 6 hours when necessary.
