Suggested default antiemetics have been added to the treatment schedule, and may be substituted to reflect institutional policy.
Even though a combination of an NK1 receptor antagonist, 5HT3, and a steroid is available on the on the PBS for the prevention of nausea and vomiting associated with all moderate to highly emetogenic anti-cancer therapies, we have opted not to include the NK1 in the treatment schedule.
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.
