Hey y'all
Both my husband and I get terrible bouts of nausea, just waves of it, almost daily. He is bipolar and not on meds right now...of course, I'm on meds but get nauseous before I take them.
Does this happen to anyone else? Do you have any remedy, except expensive anti-emetic?

I only feel that way if I need to eat something. I actually need a certain amount of sugar in my diet or I get very sick, lightheaded, and nauseous. Chocolate helps me, but I might just be a strange case since sugar/caffeine tend to be bad for depression and anxiety. I'm sure someone will come along with a better suggestion.

As for getting nauseous before your meds, I'm wondering if this is a conditioning response? Do you not like being on meds, or do they give you side effects you don't like? Maybe the nausea is your body's way of telling you it doesn't like the meds, perhaps unconsciously. Just a thought. Though you said your husband gets like that too, without meds.

The best thing I have ever found to help with nausea is the over the counter anti-nausea liquids. I have used both the Equate Brand and the Walgreens store brand and have had great luck with both of them. Just a teaspoon full is enough for me.

Beyond that you really should speak to your doctor about this as it could be caused by anything from something you eat or drink to "nerves" to any one of a hundred medical conditions.
