In cases where efficacy of the initial antiemetic dose is insufficient, the act of vomiting itself may make delivery and retention of further oral antiemetic doses difficult. In addition, continuous nausea during chemotherapy or anticipatory nausea after a poor experience with previous chemotherapy may limit patient compliance with an oral regimen. Several alternative routes have therefore been proposed to avoid hepatic metabolism while maintaining ease of administration and high rates of absorption.

This pattern might suggest a threshold value at which full saturation of the relevant receptor is achieved (although 100% efficacy is still not achieved). Various schedules of administration have also been studied with other antiemetic families. Extended infusion of antidopaminergic antiemetics has been viewed as both a method to increase overall efficacy and a method to decrease toxicity. Extended infusion schedules for both metoclopramide and prochlorperazine have therefore been studied. 0 I 40 lAg/kg DOLASETRON.
