I was given anti nausea tablets whilst on cancer treatment. Unfortunately was sick at least once a day whilst taking the anti nausea tablets. I was taking the tablets before food whilst feeling nauseous. I am quite sure I am not the only person who does not read the accompanying leaflet as occasionally it is sufficient to mke you think twice about taking the tablets. As a result of continuing to be sick decded to read the accompanying leaflet I discovered that I should have been taking the tablets after food and slowly being sick has decreased. How much more pleasant life could have been if only instructions on box had said take after food. I am surprised at the time it takes for medication to be made up at ward 8 pharmacy as I believe this pharmacy only makes up prescriptions for Oncology patients
