I have really bad advice but it worked for me - I spent so much time trying to get rid of my naseau and trying not to throw up. And one night I just gave in and threw up and felt SOOOOOO much better afterwards. So I went through a short period of time where I would throw up before bed often. Not stick my finger down my throat or anything but rather than fighting it and fighting it I would just lift the toilet seat and out it would come. While throwing up is bad for your body (the acid kills your esophogus and teeth and mouth and throat) I would have no naseau after and feel 100 times better. So I don't know if it would help you to stop fighting it once and awhile. After getting out I could actually function. I've also been prescribed compazine pills before. Made me super drowsy but cured the urge.

Nausea has become a part of my daily life. Phenegren is about the only thing that helps. The worst part is in the morning before the phenegren has started working and I have to go pooo... let's face it crohnie poo smell is nauseating in and of itself!!

Don't think I helped here. Sorry! Can you ask your doctor about Phenegren? It really does help.

What miligram Zofran are you taking? The reason I ask is there is 4 mg Zofran and 8 mg. I find that the 8 mg works much better. I am currently in remission but I still suffer with nausea due to changes caused by my resections. I take 8 mg Zofran in the a.m., 1/2 Phenergan in the afternoon, and 1 Phenergan at bedtime. These work well for me. Just fyi, the Phenergan makes you really sleepy at first. I have adjusted now and it doesn't make me really loopy anymore. Hope that helps.

I have the 4 mg Zofran. I also have Tigan 300 mg pills and Tigan as a suppository. I have had to "double" up on occasion. If I take one and it doesn't work within an hour, I will take a different version. I admit I also have given in to the urge and felt much better too. Sometimes whatever is in there just needs to get out.

And sometimes I try putting something in. I went through a spell when I was sick all the time. I was never without my travel mug, only it was filled with chicken bullion. I still take it to work almost every morning. The salt some how settled my stomach. Also, saltines with a little smear of butter on top. Something about the combo of salt and fat. Just a few, but it usually works for me. And if they do come back up, they are really bland, so it isn't too bad.

I hope you feel better soon, but you should speak to your doctor too

I wonder if you are suffering from anxiety instead. I too just this past year developed bad anxiety related to my Crohns, and I have had this disease for over 30 years. When the anxiety hits it gives me really bad gastric symptoms, i..e. nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and a very sick stomach. Took me awhile to realize what it was, but now that I can recognize it for what it is, as soon as it starts I take my Xanax and in about 1 hour I am back to my old self. Hope that helps some.

I've heard chamomile is good for nausea.

I know nausea can be a symptom of cd, but I felt more this way for the first trimester of my pregnancy... sure you're not pregnant? ;-)

Best wishes.

ImaKeeper I use the lowest dose of Xanax .025mg. It's nothing that I take everyday, but when I feel the anxiety ramping up, I take it right away, and within a hour or so, I feel more like myself. It really is a lifesaver for me. I also started some therapy at the same time and that helped alot. The Ativan knocks me on my tush:), so the Xanax is nice because I am not so loopy. Good luck!!

Ginger and peppermint help to settle my stomach a bit. Some of my friends use marijuana... you can get it prescribed here although I don't know if that's what they did. I used to get violently ill on methotrexate and I wish I could remember the name of the drug that helped... I am positive it started with an M but I realize that is useless to you :) I'll post back if I can figure it out.

Zanne I also love boullion when I am not feeling well. Salt settles my stomach as well. If I let myself get too hungry I get naseaus too.
