is anyone here presribed nausea meds? I'd just like to know because mine gets bad lately SINCE going gluten-free...oddly enough. Before gluten-free I had more burning pains and gas, now I have more nausea. Go figure....I can't figure out which is worse.

What I know is that it is a medicine very commonly dispensed for nausea. The one side effect that I did notice each and every time is sleepiness. As a result, I take it at night whenever possible. Of course, the effects vary I imagine with the dosage (once a day or twice etc.). Also, I am on other GI medications which also produce a sleepiness side effect.....probably intensifying that from the Phenergan.
So I would check with the pharmacist if you are taking any other medications. Perhaps you can break them up, taking them at different times to lessen any effects.
Without going on and on, I've taken Phenergan on and off for 5 years including during the first trimester of a very high risk pregnancy and would consider it safe. Everyone is different but it is the only nausea medication that I can actually say worked.

I hear ya on this one, lol! But then nausea was my main complaint before going gluten-free, too. Though it's different nausea now than then, if that makes any sense.
Did you see the thread a while back on peppermint candies and tea? It won't cure anything, but might give you some temporary relief, just make sure they're gluten-free.

There was a post a while back about different things to help with nausea. You may want to look at that there is a lot of great info on there and could definately help.
