To those who have used Amifostine/Ethyol, I am on my third day of it and getting very nauseous and weak. I am taking both Zofran and Compazine to counteract the nausea but I still don't feel very good. My question is whether my body will adapt and the side effects of Amifostine will lessen, or is this as good as it will get if I continue to take it? It is hard to imagine dealing with this on top of the cumulative affect of radiation. I am only in my first week of rads.
