Nausea Meds
0

5 posts in this topic

For those of us who suffer from terrible nausea, do you have meds that work? Someone today told me about Phenegran or whatever it's called and I wondered about that b/c I've never heard of that. I think it's the morning sickness med and it makes you sleepy but that's all I know.

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.

I currently have a prescription for Phenergan. I also received a RX when I was pregnant with awful morning sickness.

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.

:rolleyes:

Jknnej, how long have you been gluten-free? I noticed that after about two months gluten-free, I became SO nauseous for a couple of weeks--it was pretty bad. Now, I only have occasional bouts--I figure my body is still working out the gluten, healing, and just readjusting in general. I also was prescribed that med, but didn't take it because I hate taking medicine and my doctor told me it would knock me out, and as I'm a professor, I can't afford to sleep while I teach! I also had someone suggest taking non-drowsy Dramamine to help with the nausea, so you may want to check on that--I haven't checked if that's gluten-free or not, though, because my nausea began subsiding a bit after someone recommended it.

Good luck, and I hope you feel better very soon!

Hi,

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. :)

Nausea was my main symptom before going gluten-free. When I accidentally ingest gluten I get nauseaous but for the most part it had gotten 99.9% better. It does take time though. For some people it takes longer to feel better. When you first start the diet many things slip in at first because you don't know all the stuff gluten is hidden under. I had that problem at first. It will get better your body just may need more time.

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. :D

    • I would be very careful in giving this kind of advice, she is in an advanced stage. I was there and one additional symptom that I was getting was a strong urge to commit suicide so eating gluten for three months might not be the way to go for some people. If a gluten free diet stop the problems them gluten is the problem or a least part of it. I eliminated MSG from my diet because I notice that the common denominator for some products that affected my well being was MSG. I eliminated oats because I notice that I would get canker sores every time I ate it. Wheat is what affect my brain the most, irritability gets uncontrollable, my mental capacity greatly diminish, rash in my arms appear, can't sleep,etc. Barley makes my stomach groan, and constipated. Will try testing how Rye affect me some later time. 
    • Hi Aly and welcome You may want to repost this in a new thread, that way more people will see it and can advise you.  I think you would be much better off getting the celiac test now, if you stay off gluten you will need to go back on it and that can be much harder. That said, loads of your symptoms look like they could be gluten related.  I had a persistent 'trapped nerve' for instance under my eye which would twitch like crazy. Since I went gluten-free doesn't happen any more.  Best of luck! Matt
    • Your scalp sounds like seborrheic dermatitis. I have that and although its better after going gluten-free its very persistent. The dermatologist recommended Nizoral shampoo for it and it does help. I think dairy has a big part to play with skin problems, for me at least. 
    • I was diagnosed this year and I live on Oahu. I have yet to meet another celiac, so that tells you something about our limitations here. I work in Waikiki and do frequent Rouffage. It is nothing fancy, small place, but keeps me fed when I need something. I also like Greens and Vines. It is a vegan restaurant and worth every penny. Greens and vines sets up at the KCC farmers market on Saturdays too. Places in Waikiki that do offer a gluten-free menu include, PF Changs, Dennys, Big City Diner and California Pizza kitchen. I do not trust those places due to the risk, but they "offer" gluten-free options. I did try and order a beer at Yard House in Waikiki. They label clearly states that it contained wheat, so yeah sent that back with the waiter. I have also tied Doraku in Waikiki. I called ahead and spoke with management. That went well and they offer gluten free soy sauce. There is a deli at Down to Earth Grocery store in Honolulu that has gluten-free options, but the whole foods here do not offer hot food that is gluten free. They do have a hot food bar, but you have to stick to the whole plain salad and veggie options. It's good to hear the hotels here are getting better, beyond Waikiki hotels there is no one really interested in being gluten free.
