|Filing Date:||Nov 18, 2004|
|Claims:||1. A method for the treatment of a mammal suffering from or susceptible to emesis, comprising: administering to said mammal a 5HT.sub.3 receptor antagonist selected from the group consisting of ondansetron, granisetron and metoclopramide; and an NK.sub.1 receptor antagonist which is cis-3-(2-methoxybenzyl)amino-2-phenylpiperidine or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt. |
2. The method according to claim 1, wherein the cis-3-(2-methoxybenzyl)amino-2-phenlypiperidine or pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof is administered in an amount from about 0.1 to 400 mg per kg body weight of the subject being treated per day and the 5HT.sub.3 receptor antagonist is administered in an effective amount.
