Hi there. Decadron (a steroid) and the 5-HT3 receptor antagonists (Emend, Kytril, Zofran and ramosetron) used for nausea against Cisplatin can cause persistent hiccups.
Anyone here have that problem? Yesterday I had them for 3.5 hours before a bit of Maalox finally got rid of them. Got them now and I gotta go to the rad appointment. If I'm hiccuping they'll cancel the appt. ARGH!
