my husband uas given promethazine in generic and it worked for him.He has run out of it and now when he eats it doesn't seem to make him sick when he eats of course the chemo has taken away his apetite to eat so he is drinking ensure and other high calorie drink. Did you know that soy milk is really good for them. It comes in vanilla and choc.
