I have severe gastroparesis for 5 years now. I’ve been through tubes, pics, ports, pyloroplasty and Botox. I asked my dr if I could try emend and she gave the okand the script. I have to say, emend plus zofran was the best anti nausea and barfing control that I’ve ever had! I was so happy! But, it’s $20 for 3 pills!! I can’t afford this because of all my other meds as well. Could I get it in IV form and administer it to myself with my drs approval? Also if you get it for Iv, do you get more than 3 days worth at a time? Or more pills for the high copays? Thank you so much! Wendy

it is used to treat severe forms of nausea, so yes, it can be taken by people who do not have cancer. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including dizziness, drowsiness, headache, hiccups, and dry mouth.

As to your other questions, do you have any form of insurance? If so, can you please post back and clarify? What is covered can differ from one company to another, so it is impossible to answer correctly, without more specific details.
