What is Akynzeo?

Akynzeo (generic name netupitant/palonosetron) is a medicine that stops you from throwing up or feeling sick to your stomach. It is used by adults who are on cancer medication. It contains two different medicines, netupitant and palonsetron. Netupitant works by stopping signals in your brain that make you throw up. Palonsetron stops the signals in your gut that make you nauseous. Akynzeo should only be used along with a drug called dexamethasone (a steroid).
