Can dehydration cause nausea? Nausea and no appetite x2 days. Haven't been drinking any water. Hard to drink when nauseated. On amitriptyline 10mg.

Can dehydration cause nausea? Nausea and no appetite x2 days. Haven't been drinking any water. Hard to drink when nauseated. On amitriptyline 10mg.

Essentially yes !: Not eating can cause nausea and can also cause dehydration. Dehydration makes nausea worse. Nausea makes it hard to eat or drink. It can be a vicious cycle. Amitriptyline can possibly help with anxiety which would perhaps then reduce nausea, but can you keep it down? Can you keep down your thyroid replacement med ? Need to break this cycle with an anti-nausea drug to be able to eat/drink normal. ...Read more

Awful withdrawal symptoms from amitriptyline. Tapered from 75mg - 65mg. First 2 nights, fine. 3rd night - panic, nausea, faint. Can diazepam help?

Awful withdrawal symptoms from amitriptyline. Tapered from 75mg - 65mg. First 2 nights, fine. 3rd night - panic, nausea, faint. Can diazepam help?

Not first recourse: Diazepam (valium) hangs around the system a long time. Exchanging a need for Amitriptyline for a need for valium isn't a great bargain! such a small dosage drop shouldn't cause withdrawal--unless you have a threshhold at 70 mg. What to do depends on why the med and why the taper. But i would have your doc help you do without a benzodiazepine like valium, except short-acting and short-term. ...Read more

I take hydrocodone, cyclobenzaprine, amitriptyline, xanax, and cymbalta. Xanax as needed, cymbalta brand new - causing nausea. Can I take ondansetron?

I take hydrocodone, cyclobenzaprine, amitriptyline, xanax, and cymbalta. Xanax as needed, cymbalta brand new - causing nausea. Can I take ondansetron?

Wouldn't recommend: you are already on several drugs which inhibit serotonin reuptake, increasing their levels - amitriptylene, Cymbalta and cyclobenzaprine all have that potential, and ondansetron does it big time. This can result in the serotonin syndrome which is dangerous and even potentially fatal. All of these drugs also produce sedation. I would talk with your provider and pharmacist about safety of this. ...Read more

Switched from amitriptiline to 20mg cymbalta. Horrible nausea, not sure if it's withdrawal or side effects. Is 25mg of dramamine okay?

Cymbalta & nausea: Nausea is a common side effect with Cymbalta -- especially compared to amitriptylene. It may wear off in a few days if it's going to. Please call your prescribing physician about this, before adding any over the counter medicine like dramamine to it. ...Read more

Weaning off 10mg amitriptyline per Dr. to get pregnant. 4 nights of cutting pill in half - this morning woke up with nausea, bad abdominal pain, diarrhea. NOT pregnant yet. What do I do?

Weaning off 10mg amitriptyline per Dr. to get pregnant. 4 nights of cutting pill in half - this morning woke up with nausea, bad abdominal pain, diarrhea. NOT pregnant yet. What do I do?

Discontinuation : the symptoms are not inconsistent with withdrawal due to amitriptyline's anticholinergic properties but would have not been expected given the starting dose for reduction was low at 10mg per day. assuming no other known causes for symptoms best approach is to restart at initial dose and resume taper a at slower rate. ...Read more
