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 can also be used for morning sickness, but there is little information about the effect on the fetus, and doctors prefer not to use them unless it is strict...

bendictine

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...

However u can use only practin.... ## I have to agree, unless your doctor has instructed you to do so, it isn't safe to try to use these medications just to gain weight. Like any drug, they carry the risk of causing other severe side effects, just like Nayan has stated. Practin contains the active ingredient Cypr...

small round orange pinkish pill
1 Reply RSS
Pill is round and varies from orange to.peach to light pink its small has no markings on one side has number 21 on the other side with a line through the middle and either the number 6 or a capitol g below the line ## Hi michael, I haven't come across any images to verify the placement of the "21" and "G", but have found several reports implying that this is the imprint on a round pink 25mg Meclizine HCL tablet, used for treating symptoms of motion sickness (i.e. nausea/vomiting/dizziness). If you want to look it up, the manufacturer is listed as Rugby Pharma, and the pill itself carries a National Drug Code of 0536-1018. As I said before I have yet to find an image of this pill. However the description sounds like it may be a strong prospect. Hope this helps!

had to cxl appointment
1 Reply RSS
I have been in a zubsolve program for 6 weeks. Had to cxl today because I could not get out of work. I work 1 1/2 from the Dr office. I tried to reschedule for tomorrow and they said no. Can they do this? ## Hello, Sue! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problem you've run into. Sadly yes, they can do that. No doctor is obligated to treat you, unless you are in immediate life-threatening danger. They can refuse to reschedule or drop you as a patient for any reason they see fit. The FDA classifies this medication as an opiate that is most commonly used to treat drug addiction, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?

I have been given AMOX-CLAV 875 MG TABLET FOR A SKIN INFECTI
1 Reply RSS
I have the 875 mgtablet, it's so large and I see it's scored in half. Is it safe for me to snap it in half and take one half at a time, as long as I am taking entire tablet? ## Hello, Lisa! How are you? I'm sorry about the infection. Yes, you can cut or break them in half to make it easier to swallow them, as long as you take the whole tablet. Unless your doctor specifies some reason you shouldn't do so. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this antibiotic as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with?

rbx n 1 blue and white capsules
4 Replies RSS
These are known as "THC" pills. They are a synthetic (man made) form of the active chemical in marijuana. Used to decrease the nausea of cancer patients, and improve their appetite. ## Hello AnonymousToker, Thank you for providing this information! My research leads me to believe that blue and white THC capsules do exist, but I have not been able to locate any with a rbx n1 imprint. Is rbx n1 normally imprinted on the capsules? If you can provide a link to an image that would be very helpful! Based on my research, no serious or life threatening side effects have been reported due to THC intake. I personally do not recommend that anyone use THC capsules without a medical cannabis license or recommendation by a licensed medical physician. If anyone has any questions or information...
