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...

Bendectin and birth defects
680 Replies RSS
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. ## 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 good res...

USE OF TELVAS 40 MG
3 Replies RSS
I wanted to know the small and big side effects of using Telvas 40 continuously for the last 10 years? ## The NIH lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. Your risks would be far greater if you let high high blood pressure, or a cardiac condition remain uncontrolled, since they have the potential to be fatal. Are you on any other medications? ## Is there any added benefit to taking telvas h 40 instead of telvas 40? I have been taking telvas h 40 for several years and my blood pressure is maintained at 100 to 120 and 65 to 75. Should I switch over to telvas 40? ## Hi. My mom has been taking telvas 40 for high bp since last year and before that she was taking nebicard 5. She has some kidney issues too. Please t...

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.

2 Replies RSS
Hi. I'm Sara. I'm 35 years old. It was my first time taking diane 35 contraceptive. I was worried because I have spotting now and I still have 2 tablets; not yet finished. I want to ask if this is normal or not? ## Hello, Sara! How are you? Yes, that can be a normal side effect and may continue for about 3 months, or so, while your body adjusts to this medication. As reported by the U.S. FDA you may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. If it continues beyond 3 months, or if the bleeding gets heavy, you should consult your doctor as it may not be the right oral contraceptive for you to take and you may need to try a different one. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi. I had an unprotected intercourse and the same day I started taking diane 35 - f...

Rem Cough Syrup
29 Replies RSS
Info on a cough syrup called REM.It was manufactured, I believe by Maryland Pharmaceutical around the 1940's. I think it had a blue bottle with a orange circle with the name REM printed on it ## I'm sorry, but I can't find any information on this, which really isn't very surprising for that old of a product. There were also many differences back then for what were considered pharmaceutical products. Does anyone have information on this? ## my mother use to give to to us in the early 60's. ## I used it in the 1980s and it worked well. I don't tolerate the chemical ones. I remember REM had ipecac, lobelia, squills and other things...I just remember those because ipecac was used as an emetic and when I looked up lobelia and squills they were listed in an herbal book...

Is it normal? And when should i start my next course of pills? ## I have taken femilon tablets for irregular periods prescribed by my doc.. but I have not completed 21 days yet. So is there any chance of it delaying my periods? ## Ratan, yes, it can be normal for your periods to be lighter, and spotty, while taking hormonal contraceptives, according to the NIH. Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, and PMS-like symptoms, and you should start your next course after a 7 day break. Dolly, how long have you been taking it and how many have you taken? ## I a...
