Any Anti-nausea Medication Gf
0

9 posts in this topic

I am 8 weeks pregnant with my third and I am soooo sick. It started at 7 weeks just like with my last two and those lasted until 15 weeks. This time it is so much worse. For the last two weeks I have thrown up at least 4 times a day. All of the medications I have looked up say unknown if they are gluten-free or not. Has anyone taken any of these medications and found them to be gluten-free? I can hardly funtion right now and I cant imagine 6 more weeks of this!

Thanks

Stephanie

Cola syrup by Apothecary Products relieves nausea really well for me. I buy mine at the local supermarket. You can probably get it on their website www.apothecaryproducts.com

Also Liddell makes a homeopathic spray called Stomach Distress that you spray under the tongue. This has also been something I keep on hand

Nausea is my major symptom whenever I am glutened

*warning* since you are pregnant check with a doctor before using products

talk to your doctor and they should give you something. I know I took two different types because I was so sick both of the the dr. gave me. The phamacy should also let you know if the are gluten-free. I hope you feel better and congrats on your baby!

B-complex will often help morning sickness. Never let your stomach get totally empty or it will be hard to get it back under control. The old soda crackers by the bedside doesn't work for us, but some other gluten-free snack might. Just be sure you eat it while still laying down. The good news is that if you are like most of us, you will wake up one morning during week 13 and suddenly realize that you aren't nauseated anymore. Then you can enjoy this pregnancy.

If your doctor says you can have phenergan, Watson makes a gluten-free generic.

I personally can't stand nausea and I say take drugs!

Zofran and Phenegran are gluten-free and are wonderful anti-nausea drugs. Get your doc to prescribe you one of those-they are both prescription. Zofran is really expensive but Phenegran is not.

I also heard Compazine works.

If you don't want to take drugs, try

Hi there! Sorry you are so sick! I was like this with my last child and it was pure hell. Especially if you have other kiddies to care for. Just a warning about Phenergan, it will knock you on your butt and if you have other small kids I would probably opt for Zofran even though it is more expensive. I took Phenergan, but only when my husband was home because I kept falling asleep with a 2 year old in the house. You will probably have to phone the maker of both meds to find out if they are gluten-free. If you want to go the nautal route, try ginger pills if your OB says its ok. They helped me a bit. I hope you feel better soon!

Zofran and Phenegran are the meds. I took I just couldn't remember the name.

Phenegran really didn't work for me just for a couple of days and then I was sick. It did make me really sleepy so I had to time it out when I knew that I had to drive to work. Zofran worked much better and didn't make me tired at all. I was still sick but not as bad as I would have been if I didn't have any meds. I hope you feel better soon.

Kaysol- I have celiac disease, and I am 8 weeks pregnant! I have extreme nausea all day long. I have been prescribed Zofran. I am having such a hard time because I am gluten-free. I just got diagnosed six months ago. I cannot find things I want to eat. It is especially hard because cooking makes me so nauseated. When is your baby due. I am due Feb 11. Good luck!

Hi everyone, thanks for all the help. I went ot my first appt today and my Dr. suggested phenegren or Zofran also. I am glad to hear they are gluten-free, I couldnt fine that information. I will be much happier if I am not throwing up! I have a 5 and a 2 year old so feeling like I have the flu for 3 straight weeks is not fun at all!

natmilly, I am due on February 9th, sounds like we are right at the same place. Good luck to you too! and yes, nothing tastes or sounds good right now to me either. even the thought of food makes me gag. I know this will pass and I will eating like crazy again soon enough but sheesh!

    • So I've been glutened....
      Yeah I did all the bone broths and sauerkraut after my challenge. Although I wasn't very good at making sauerkraut... Its summer here now so I've eased up on the bone boiling, plus my local butcher is struggling to obtain them. As you say healing to the point where microscopic cross contamination doesn't get you would be a big win.  I was ok with coffee until last few days. I drank decaff black and would have several cups a day without issue. I'll be gutted if I can't handle it any more. I hadn't realised you could get gluten-free miso soup. Will have to look for that    
    • So I've been glutened....
      Coffee is a no-no for me!  I actually gave up coffee since my diagnosis back on 2/2016.  I was diagnosed by a biopsy in the stomach...no villi.   Coffee is a stimulant to the GI system and it really irritates your GI when you are having a flare up.  I was tested by stools and was informed I barely had good bacteria in my gut which is typically for people with celiac. I went on a high dose of probiotic (just started) twice a day, multivitamin, lots of fermented vegetables like sauerkraut, kimchi, miso soup and tons of bone broth.  I am going to a local farm today to pick up organic bones to make my broth.  I am so desperate to heal my gut, not to introduce gluten but to be able to tolerate an exposure without being knocked out by it....Eat very light, I stick to vegetable juice, resistance starch food such as banana, apples, potatoes boiled until my diarrhea subsides.  I am currently in a flare up stage; did something and I have been glutened I am on day 7 and my symptoms peak after a few days, around day 4-5 and it last a few days of Diarrhea, nausea, sensation of feeling full, back pain in the rib cage on left side and hip/lower back pain on left side.  Its horrible!  I feel weak right now due to the diarrhea and since I am not hungry it makes it worse.  Hope this gets better.
    • DNA Testing
      I got the print out and took it to my new dr because what my RA was saying didn't seem to add up.  When I pressed him for more info, he said I didn't have any of the markers. Turns out he read the test wrong!  Since then, my new doc also questioned all my previous bloodwork and asked why I hadn't been told that my counts were really low or tested for ferritin levels. My ferritin was at 10, so, yeah, 4 other Dr's missed anemia on my labs. It's been frustrating to say the least, but I am finally feeling a little bit hopeful with my new primary doc. She's just referred me to a specialist focusing on celiac. Considering my former gp told me "that whole celiac thing is just a fad", I'm feeling a bit more secure. 
    • So I've been glutened....
      Thanks for the kind responses  Last night I went out and had a black coffee, non decaf.   Big mistake... I started getting gas almost immediately and it went on for the rest of the evening. It seems like anything which might annoy my stomach at the moment results in churning and an uncomfortable feeling. the weird thing is that I ate a huge lunch including gluten-free bread earlier with no effects whatsoever. Just as well as I couldn't face food last night and am not enthused with breakfast now.  C i think I'll dig out some probiotics and try and eat simply for a few days and hope things settle down. I'm just worried that something has changed and this is the new normal... That would suck...  
    • Toblerone
      It's on the safe list here in the uk and I eat it without a problem. theres also a really nice almondy toblerone cake available now.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
