    i was reading on the net and i found something that (in my experience) is very true. I'll quote (and underline):

    "There are now very effective anti-sickness drugs to prevent or reduce this. It is important to take these as directed, even if you are not feeling sick. This is because some anti-sickness drugs are much better at preventing sickness than stopping it once it starts. If the sickness is not controlled, or continues, tell your doctor. They can prescribe other anti-sickness drugs that may be more effective."

    May sound a stupid advise but, in my case, i followed this tip only on round-two of BEP and things got REALLY better compared to first round (when i thought: "oh well, nausea must be a part of it... guess there's nothing to do about it..."

    In bocca al lupo!

    I agree 100% once during his chemo cycle my son was feeling quite well so he didn't take his anti-nausea meds. He couldn't get the sickness under control until the next morning when they added something to his IV.
