Feedback:
Prescribers often order aprepitant as part of combination therapy along with a 5-HT3 receptor antagonist and corticosteroids to treat both acute and delayed nausea and vomiting associated with chemotherapy. NG tube insertion, radiation therapy, and endoscopy are not typical indications for the use of aprepitant.
