Today my ex's sister texted me to see if she could have my son, her nephew, for a few hours. Not a problem. My son LOVES playing with his cousin.

So about an hour later she calls me and says that I need to come get him. He apparently got sick. She said he threw up once, then acted fine, then started saying his stomach hurt not long after that. So she gave him half of this pill and gave me the other half "in case he needed it again later".
WTF?? It was a prescription pill in a prescription package. I had never heard of it so I googled it when I got home. Apparently its a medication that they give to cancer patients right before chemo to help them not throw up. Which is fine. When its PRESCRIBED to you!

My ds's stomach hurt for the rest of the night. Now I don't know if its because he's sick or because of the drugs she gave him! He seems fine otherwise...no fever...didn't get sick again...

Idk...does this pill sound familiar to anyone?? How safe is it?? I would tell you the name but I threw it away...it starts with an o....

Wth is wrong with people?????

Ummm i would have kept the other half and taken him to the doc and told them what she gave him and see what they thought was best to do. Thats just fucked up that she did that.

 I'd try calling Poison Control, really.  That's messed up she did that.

You should probably call poison control to be safe

Just so you know its totally safe. Its not just given to cancer patients. Its a alternative to phenigian(sp) without the sleepiness. Not saying it's right just telling you it's safe. I took it while pregnant

That would be the last time he goes there alone. That's scary.
