 2  Chemo IV dose of Emend after several minutes produced severe allergic reaction. Felt like insides were swelling then had sensation of falling into a cave. Could see and hear nurses but couldn't respond. Had flushed face, blood pressure went up and oxygen level down. Lasted for a short time after IV turned off. It's on my list of meds I'm allergic to. Was told it's the first time they ever saw that reaction. F 70 1 days

EMEND  (APREPITANT):  Fosaprepitant is used with other medications to help prevent nausea and vomiting caused by cancer drug treatment (chemotherapy). Fosaprepitant works by blocking one of the body's natural substances (substance P/neurokinin 1) that causes vomiting. This medication will not treat nausea or vomiting that has already started. Ask your doctor what you should do if you already have nausea or vomiting.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
