Extreme emetophobic and have been given Cipramil (10mg). So afraid to take it each day because I'm petrified and make myself feel sick. help!

Have a feeling of "fullness/bloated-ness" in my stomach & am becoming anxious as I am emetophobic. What can I do to ease these episodes in the future?
Don't overfill: Stop eating/drinking as soon as you start to feel full. Avoid carbonated drinks and in fact avoid drinking while you are eating. Eat some ginger candy or drink a bit of ginger tea.
