ALOXI Helps Prevent CINV
ALOXI (palonosetron HCI) injection is an anti-nausea medication that may help prevent CINV when
you take chemotherapy. ALOXI is given as a single injection, often given through
the same intravenous (IV) line as your chemotherapy.
ALOXI can help prevent nausea and vomiting on the day of chemotherapy that is highly
likely to cause nausea and vomiting and up to 5 days following chemotherapy that
is moderately likely to cause nausea and vomiting.
If you are taking chemotherapy or are about to begin chemotherapy, spend a few moments
to learn about CINV. Most
importantly, talk with your
doctor about any symptoms of CINV you may be experiencing. Then ask what
ALOXI may do to help.
