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...

antibiotic for tooth infection rash in roof of mouth
2 Replies RSS
Had a tooth pulled and was put on antibiotic, now I have a rash in the roof of my mouth. Should I go back to dentist? ## Hello, Lucy! How are you? Yes, you should see your dentist or PCP, as soon as possible. The antibiotic may have caused an oral yeast infection that will require treatment, if that's the case. The FDA lists the other typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you, I will go tomorrow.

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...

Does Dexona and Practin Tabs Increase weight...? Will i have any problems in future....? ## Please I recommend not to use practin and dexona....for weight gain... i used them for 2 mnths for weight gain...i gained 12 kgs in 2 months but after leaving those tablets..i had jaundice..and had anrexia and nausea ...and had no appetite..i lost all 12 kgs in only 15-20 days...but the symptoms continued..i had a doctor checkup ..he told me that it will take 8-12 months to recover.. 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.

hi.. is it okay to take althea pills even if my period finish week ago?? or should i wait for the nextmonth period to start pill?? ## Hello, Kate! How are you? According to the information provided by the FDA for oral contraceptives, you can start at any time, but if it's past the second day of your cycle, you'll need to wait a full 7 days, before being protected from pregnancy. Thus, you should use a backup method of contraception, until the 8th day, unless your doctor instructs otherwise. Typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, breakthrough bleeding and PMS-like symptoms. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Ok lng po ba directly taking any pills without consulting my ob-gyne?

this medication says u should stay out of the sun just wondering why? What would the side effects be if i was in the sun for a while? ## Most medications that tell you to stay out of the sun contain photo-toxic/light-sensitive chemical properties that may have an effect on your skin (possibly rash, or quickly sunburn, etc) if your in direct sunlight for a given length of time. Also one could experience nausea or headache from this. I'm not aware of any other possible side effects, but I would suggest wearing lots of high spf sunblock if you do go out in direct sunlight after taking the medication to help prevent any of this from happening. Or if you are able to do so, try and schedule to take this medication in the evening hours so you don't even have to worry about going outsid...

Chinese Pill with HNSY Printed on it
Post a Reply
I was given medicine by a Chinese doctor after complaining of vomiting and stomach cramps. The pill is brownish orange and peach, oblong shaped and has HNSY printed on both ends. I am wondering if anyone can identify this medicine. I am particularly concerned whether or not there are any side effects and if it will interact with my birth control. Thank you!
