Nausea & Vomiting Overview

An antiemetic is a drug that is effective against vomiting and nausea. Antiemetics are typically used to treat motion sickness and the side effects of opioid analgesics, general anaesthetics, and chemotherapy directed against cancer. They may be used for severe cases of gastroenteritis, especially if the patient is dehydrated. Antiemetics, though previously thought to cause birth defects, have been proven safe for use by pregnant women in the treatment of morning sickness and the more serious...

You should inform your doctor, you may need to take a longer course of treatment, since some doses were missed. Anok, it is normal to be on it for that long, some people take it even longer, you should follow your doctor's instructions. The U.S. FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, stomach pain, diarrhea and headache. Is there anything else I can help with?

I took this drug in the 1970's while pregnant. Am looking for the side effects to the babies. Drug has been off the market for many years. Not sure on correct spelling. Used for nausea and vomiting during pregnancy. Thank you for any help you can send me. Sincerely, Dana Jones. ## Dana, The drug Bendictine you are referring to was reported to cause birth defects in some cases. But a similar drug is prescribed today and it's called Diclectin. Funny how some people will say to stay away from something while others say it's perfectly safe. I think it's a matter of speaking to at least several physicians and following your intuition, as far as what feels right for you and who you trust. The drug Diclectin is a combination of Doxylamine (an antihistamine) and Vitamin B6. A go...

cymgen 60 side effects and living
1 Reply RSS
Have been on cymgen for nearly 7 years now. It has worked but now the side effects are getting to be too much. Muscle stiffness, constant headache and I can't go a single day without them, it's the worst feeling ever. I have been a drug addict for 15 years and not even opioid withdrawals are as bad as cymgen withdrawals. I have tried to cut down to 30 mg but couldn't bare the withdrawals. Now I am on 60 mg and its seems to not work as good as it use to. Somedays I really can't get up. I am always so stiff in my neck. I also get heart palpitations, bad blood circulation and I feel withdrawn from everything around me. I don't feel any emotion. This is now enough. I want to stop taking this med. This is not a life I promise you that. ## Hello, Andre! How are you? When d...

Hi my 16year old son is using trepiline 10mg but i only gave him half of it because his tired during school time but now is getting nausea is it the side effect of trepiline that makes him feel nausea. ## Hello, Nicky! How are you? Yes, nausea and drowsiness can be side effects of this medication, as reported by the U.S. FDA. He may also experience dry mouth and weight changes. How long has he been taking it? Typically side effects are transient and will go away after a few weeks, once your body gets used to a medication. If he's tired during the school day, you could try giving it to him at night, as long as his doctor approves.

My 8 weeks baby is taking Ilvitrim suspension. The nurses at the clinic says I should give her 2.5m once daily and the pharmacists says I should give her 2.5ml every 12 hours acording to what is wriiten on the leaflet. Meanwhile, she has rash around her body even before the start of the ilivitrim. Please advice ## Hello, Fern! How are you? In this case, you're not fighting an infection, as per the directions the pharmacist is reading, you're trying to prevent one, so it would be best to follow the nurse's instructions, unless a doctor tells you otherwise. The U.S. FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. A rash is very common in infants, their skin tends to be very sensitive. Have you had the n...

What are the side effects of Potassium Cl 20meq er? ## My grandmother has been prescribed this medication (Potassium CL) and has discovered them completely whole in her bowel movements, why is this? ## Kimberly, when some medications are time released, the outer shell of the tablet is NOT meant to be digested and is just expelled as waste, however, the medication is still released and used by the body, just as it is supposed to be. Many of these types of medications will even carry warnings about this in the drug monographs. Side effects can include: high potassium levels, nausea, diarrhea and muscle weakness. Did you have any other questions? ## Mom has always taken K CR and now it is ER. What is the difference. I thought CR meant time release. ## Kimberly, I really doubt that answer. ...
