They administered it through my port just prior to each infusion, and then sent three 10 mg tabs home with me, one for each day following the infusion. This is a high dose, but my nausea was so severe and debilitating that I decided to stick with the higher dose. Then the nausea would pass/become manageable and I wouldn't need it until my next round. I did an infusion every three weeks, coupled with oral Xeloda for the first two weeks of each cycle. I'm not sure how I would have coped without the Zyprexa - it truly made all the difference. Hang in there!! Hoping they can find the right cocktail for your husband.
