Hi, there is very scant evidence to suggest that SSRI medications (Prozac) are helpful in treatment of Gastroparesis and also because they can increase nausea they are not well tolerated, the other 2 med are used to treat nausea and they have been used to treat nausea in patients with gastroparesis. although SNRI and TCA could be more effective.

Gastroparesis is difficult to treat,Rx is individualized. Some times Domeperidome ( not available in US, but available in Canada) works. Ginger tea and chewing dry salted Ginger may help Nausea.
