I have this code:

  \item[first item] \hfill \\
    Description of first item
  \item[second item] \hfill \\
    Description of second item

And it generates something like this:

First Item
  Description of first Item
Second Item
-------- PAGE BREAK ----------
  Description of second item

How can I prevent the page break between the title of an item and its

I tried adding \nopagebreak after \descriptionlabel like this:

\let\orig at descriptionlabel\descriptionlabel
\renewcommand*{\descriptionlabel}[1]{\orig at descriptionlabel{#1}\nopagebreak}

But that didn't change anything. Adding \nopagebreak around the second
item in the code also didn't prevent the break.
