Is it normal to have nausea and vomiting after plasmapheresis?

my daughter finished plasmaferisis at about 3:30 yesterday. She has been throwing up fairly steadly since then. She had nausea all the way thru the procedure and is still very nauseated. She is now running a fever around 100. Nothing stays down. Do I need to take her to the ER?

Hello,

Fatigue, nausea, dizziness, chills during infusion and adrenal fatigue are the symptoms of plasmapheresis.

So use tablet ondonsetron twice a day for five days. Consult your doctor he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
