i am new to the nursing world, just recently graduated in may, and i have become very interested in a medication my mother received while receiving chemotherapy. it was handwritten labeled abh capsules, take one pill q6h for nausea. now, i have found out that, i believe, it is ativan, benadryl, and haldol, however, what is confusing me is that all the information that i have found (which is very little) has been on hard and soft troches and gel or cream...not capsules, and my mom was told to swallow it like a pill (not to let it disolve like a troche). if anyone has any information, please let me know, as i am most curious. it could have been a research drug at the time, and if that is the case, she never signed informed consent either. please help! i know all you oncology and hospice nurses might have an idea! i'd appreciate any direction you can give me!

thank you very much siri! do you know where i can find information on it? i've tried researching it in every way possible, but it doesn't seem to come up with hardly anything about it!
