My sister started her chemo today 5FU , she is only 107 lbs and already she is very nauseous and does not want to eat. she already took the compazine but it did not help. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you, I will call him and ask for that. do you only take after the infusion or during also?

Kady - A whiff of rubbing alcohol is a quick fix - settles you somehow.
Odan was the third nausea med my hubby tried that finally helped - took it daily. He got Emend the days before his big chemo treatments.
If you can, get as few pills as you can to see if it works.
God bless you and your sis!
