Collecting improvements, until there's a cure.
What do you do for intense nausea? How well does it work?
I wish I knew what causes it! How do you even begin to try to figure where it's coming from? How would you know if it's the OI?Firstly try to work out the whys you are getting nausea eg it could be food related eg I used to get nausea if I'd drank milk, OI related etc.. then try to cut back on the triggering things (that's what I do).
Ginger in my own cause doesnt help any nausea I get at all. (Ive had very little luck with getting herbal med to help my ME symptoms)
I take a prescription anti-nausea drug at times Metoclopramide (that's sometimes given to chemo patients to stop sickness, nausea). It actually makes me feel illner when I first take it (maybe due to the MCS???) but then a short ime later my nausea completely goes away.
Prescription promethazine tablets (brand name Phenergan) help with nausea. This is also available as a suppository for when you can't keep anything down by mouth.
Promethazine is extremely sedating for me, so be careful. I was prescribed 25 mg for sinus problems and it knocked me out for about 12 hours, and for the next 12 hours I was struggling to maintain consciousness.
You can buy it online, and in the UK you can also get some dosages in pharmacies, and there are a few different brand names, as stated here.
My prescription bottle for promethazine says to take one-half to one 25mg tablet every 12 hours. I've never taken 25mg at one time; I've always taken one-half of a 25mg tablet as my dose. The side effects, such as drowsiness, are dose-related, much like most antihistamines.
Can people clarify - are the references to Nux vomica about homeopathic products? I ask because Nux vomica itself is highly toxic. Don't want any confusion arising!
