Where can you go for more

information?

Many cancer centers or local hospitals have

complementary therapy programs that offer

acupuncture, yoga, and other types of therapy. The

goal is to prevent or help you cope with side effects.

You can also speak with a social worker, psychologist,

or other mental health professional if you have any

issues or need guidance. There may be national

organizations or local groups in the community who

can give information in booklet form (like this one).

You can search online resources, or find free support

groups in your area. (See

Part 5, Resources

).

Doctors also need to do their part and stay on top of

the latest data from research done on anti-nausea

and vomiting therapies. Ask your doctor about current

information on how to prevent and treat nausea and

vomiting. Learn about online and print resources on

side effects. Discuss and decide with your treatment

team what works best for you when it comes to side

effect care.

Review

• Taking good care of yourself is the most important

thing you can do at this time.

• It is important to take your anti-nausea and

vomiting medicine as prescribed.

complementary therapy programs.
