I've been off my meds cold turkey starting this last Sunday, when I began to vomit everything I swallowed and this has continued since, even unable to keep clear liquids and water down. I even called my dr, asked if I could be seen as he said he would not give me anything, and was given a loud resounding no from my dr, that even if he did see me he would not give me anything for the nausea and vomiting. I don't know if it's stress, a stomach bug, or pregnancy as my period is late, but that could go back to stress. My mother, after being a nurse of 25 yrs, has never heard of anything like this and is putting a complaint in with the state medical board, saying that even though he is leaving this coming Friday, there is no reason for him to refuse treatment to a patient obviously in need of medical care. If this continues, I'm going to the ER, though I am afraid the ER doc will call my doc and I will be back at square one.

You'll get dehydrated if this continues much longer - and that brings its own problems.
 
Something like Gatorade gets into the system faster and some may get into your system.  Seems like that's what we used to do with the kids when they couldn't keep anything else down.
 
Hope you get some relief from this.

I finally went to the er, was basically having a massive anxiety attack and started a fight with hubby, broke his comp actually. But I was given Nubane and phenergan shot and then a script for Zofram and a neg urine preg test, with orders to get another if my period doesn't come soon. Feeling a bit better, but completely drained and tired.

Oh, the lovely anxiety.  I've been dealing with that myself lately - fun times.  rolleyes
 
I'm wondering if you chose to go off your meds cold turkey yourself or if it was you doctor's suggestion.  I know that some of the meds in your signature (Celex, Desipramine) can cause withdrawal symptoms in some people. Going off cold turkey instead of tapering off can sometimes make withdrawal worse.  Maybe this is causing some of you physical illness and anxiety (?)
 
Have you tried popsicles?  One of the most helpful things I've found when I'm nauseous or dehydrated is frozen Coke or Sprite.  Coke and Sprite both tend to help settle an upset stomach.  You can freeze them in an ice cube tray with toothpicks for handles or even in a plastic cup with a spoon sticking out for a handle.  Sometimes it is the only thing I can keep down.
 
Hope you are feeling better soon!!

You may want to try the "recipe" below.  This was give to me years ago and it has worked great for vomiting for my family.  It seems to settle the stomach and keeps you from becoming dehydrated.  My adult children still use it!

                 For Nausea and Vomiting

                      1/2 Cup Gingerale

                      1/2 Cup Orange Juice

                      1 Tablespoon Karo Syrup (Light or Dark)

     Mix together and give one tablespoon every ten minutes for six doses (if needed).  Then give every 20 minutes until 2-3 doses are retained and nausea stops.

My kids continued to sip on it because it tasted so good to them!  Hope this helps.

Oooh Sherrine, that sounds good! I will have to try some soon, the vomiting has stopped but not the nausea.
I've eased back into a normal diet, with plenty of popcicles and clear liquids for good measure.
Unfortunately, Austen, it was me that started the cold turkey, well more accurately the vomiting as as soon as I'd take my meds back they'd come and I think that is what caused my anxiety attack.
I'm back on the OTC meds, the er doc said to stop them for now, until I can be seen by my norm dr, which thank god, I'll be seeing the new dr Tues and hubby is going with even if I have to tote his big butt there myself LOL

TY guys :)

I thought I had posted to this Lola. I hope your tummy has settled down by now. Is the zofran what you put under your tongue to dissolve???
 
I'm surprised Sherrine doesn't put a little of her medicinal rum in that recipe. devil
 
luv and hugs
