Be sure to talk to your doctor about anti-nausea medications that may help you during chemotherapy. There are many options available and most work quite well to avert problems. Sometimes natural remedies such as ginger and acupuncture may provide some benefit without many side effects.

Who should not take Xtandi?
Stacy Wiegman, PharmD, Pharmacy, answeredYou should not take Xtandi (enzalutamide), a prescription medication used to treat metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer, if your prostate cancer isn't that advanced, or if you haven't already taken docetaxel. Only men should take Xtandi.
Because Xtandi can be harmful to a developing fetus, you should not take Xtandi if you have unprotected sex with pregnant women or women who can become pregnant. You should use a condom and another form of birth control when having sex with a woman who can become pregnant.
Is there a cure for prostate cancer?
