  Hi guys!  I need some help for nausea.  It all started following a colonoscopy about 2 weeks ago.  I'm taking Zofran but sometimes it makes me feel funny so I don't like to take it at work or school.  I've been drinking ginger ale and eating chicken soup, etc. but it only seems like it's worse lately.  I know I have to call my doctor (and I am tomorrow) but I wondered if anyone had any remedies?  I'll try anything at this point!
 
Thank you in advance!

-Miralax (because surprisingly I need it sometimes)

thats a good call i wish i knew of something I've got it pretty much 24/7 but my colitis isn't under control either, I find fizzy drinks make my stomach worse in the long run. Also dairy gives me really bad nausea they say licorice helps i tried it 4 a while but i real don't like the taste my be worth a try.

Let us know what happens

I find that mint always helps my nausea. To be specific, mint Mentos really work. I know that sounds ridiculous, but I swear by them! Mint chewing gum works for me, too, if I don't have any Mentos handy. Mint tea has also helped in the past.

I am on zofran as well and I most of the time it really doesn't do anything.

Ginger sometime works. Either ginger tea or if you can stand it a little piece of raw ginger.

When it gets bad i usually just take a nap.


curious to hear what your GI says. You are at Northwest Gastro, right?

Domperidone, metroclopramide and Phenergan(Anti histamine) have all been helpful to me in the past.I take Metroclopramide now every day and it really does help when taken everyday.Hope you feel better soon.

Slowly sipping some Apple & Eve Natural Cranberry juice helped me thru AM nausea from long-term Colazal (9 daily). I progressed from juice & plain water to dry toast within a couple hours-- after heaving several times in early AM. Yuck! Best wishes for you to overcome this, too. / Old Hat (nearly 30 yrs with left-sided UC; currently on 6 Colazal daily for July flare in descending colon; should be back in remission again soon)

i take compazine--it works most of the time, although sometimes i have to double the dose to get a good effect.

I used to be nauseous every afternoon when I was on prednisone. I found that sipping a cold can of gingerale over several hours after lunch really helped alleviate the nausea.
Good Luck!

  I talked to the nurse at my MD's office. (he wasn't in on friday so she had to talk to another MD)  Looks like I'm starting Prednisone again for a "short course" but really at this point I'll do whatever they want.  As for the nausea, there wasn't much else I could do.  I'm being assessed to participate in a study at another location so our hands are kind of tied as far as what meds I can take and not be excluded from the study.  I don't want to be disqualified because I made a mistake.  I'm still trying the ginger ale and I've been drinking Jamba Juice.  I figure at least if I'm not eating a whole lot, I can at least get a few calories out of that.  Thank you for all of your suggestions and keep them coming if you can think of any others!  I'll keep you posted.

Peppermint is suppose to help with nausea, if that doesn't help then you could always buy Gravol.

  I went to the store today and got licorice, mint mentos, and those soft pastel colored mints that like melt when you eat them.  (they said on the package that they are made with real peppermint oil so that sold me!) So, I'm trying everything!  I don't know what Gravol is....

Gravol is an over the counter med at the pharmacy that people use for nausea, they often take it before travelling on a plane or ship/boat.

I've been getting nauseous all the time lately. It sucks. I don't know what's causing it. Maybe my Asacol? Nausea is listed as a common side effect. I hope I can reduce my dose soon and my nausea will go away.
