confused  Yes I have picked the sad face cause that's what I am every 6 - 8 weeks when my poor husband is vomiting day and night for anything up to 4 - 8 days and nights. This is what happened when he was first diagnosed with crohns. Doctors are not familiar with this complaint recurring on such a regular basis. Does anyone know of any medication that he could take for this or why it never fails to return ? I would really appreciate your comments or help. Thank You Winter.

I take 8mg Zofran every morning and Phenergan every night at bedtime. I wonder if your husband might have a blockage or something. Has his docs done any tests on him lately? Nausea is very common with Crohns by the way. When I am flaring thats the first thing to come.

Any time I start vomiting I usually can't stop on my own. I go to the docs and get some shot and it goes right away. Im not really sure what that shot is though. I think compuzine.

These are symptoms of the disease and they are telling you the disease is not controlled. Time to talk to the doctors about increasing or changing medications. If the disease isn't controlled, you keep trying things until it is.
