Skeye nausea and vomitting has been a big part of my life for the past 4 yrs. I do take Zofran but I will warn you, 24 pills which is the max allowed for month is over $500 if you do not have insurance. My gi seems to think its the meds in my pump that causes this problem. All I know many things can trigger it. We have walked into restaurants before and all the difference smells of foods sends me flying back out the front door. Mine mostly occurs right after I get up in the mornings.
Another good OT that is inexpensive is Emitrol. I have had some decent luck with it, if I take it the minute the nausea hits. I also have sucked on peppermint candy to put it at bay. Dom't give up your ginger ale because if you are actually vomitting it will help calm the stomach somewhat.
Since you are experiencing some violent episodes it might be a good idea to get some suppositories to keep on hand for the really bad times. Just a few thoughts, Susie
I am currently on chemo and I take phenergan for my main med and then zofran as my rescue. For me ginger ale really works. I get a lot of morning nausea, my husband will get me some ginger ale, I stay lying down for awhile and then I can get up.
In addition, spearmint and peppermint in teas also help well. I have found just smelling spearmint can make it better.
