Ok...so one of the things that I have been having real trouble lately with is nausea. I seem to be nauseous at least 3 or 4 times a day, and those times each vary in length. I have found that peppermint helps some....and I do have a prescription for compazine. However, I feel like I'm always popping one or the other. Does any have any other suggestions of things that might help, or even know of some causes of it?

stomach. Now I'm off all meds I don't get it anymore.

Oh man I'm on so many meds...that prob could be a big part of it. But unfortunately, I'm seriously unable to get off my meds. I've tried once, it wasn't a good situation at all.

Sarah, I get occasional nausea from my gabapentin and Cymbalta. I hear you about popping pills and mints all the time; I get sick of that too. When I get sick I will usually have a glass of milk, or a cup of peppermint tea to calm my stomach. I also will chew a small piece of raw ginger root, which works like a charm but is an acquired taste. Candied ginger also helps. I also take supplements and make sure to take them with food or a meal, because they will make me totally nauseated if I take them on an empty stomach or with water. I usually take my D3, multivitamin, malic acid/magnesium first thing in the morning with a cup of yogurt, usually a small glass of milk as well, then drink some hot tea and eat toast.

Years ago I took ginseng and had to stop because it made me nauseated when I ate. My doc thought it might have conflicted with other foods or stomach acid. I would make a journal of what you eat; how you feel before and after; how and when you take your meds; and how you feel before and after. Do this for a week or so and you will find some patterns of when you feel nausea.

I will def do that, thank you. I wonder if mine is Ginseng too? That's the newest thing I've started taking, so that actually would make sense. I will def have to look into that. I've thought about stopping it anyways, as it doesn't do much good for me, and its just an added expense. But I will try doing the log....thanks!
