The: The symptoms you describe are consistent with a common cold or flu. Supportive care will help with your symptoms. This includes maintaining adequate hydration, taking analgesics like tylenol (acetaminophen) or advil for pain and/or fever, medications aimed at specific symptoms (i.E dayquil), and plenty of rest. If your symptoms worsen or persist, or the abdominal pain is still present you should see your doctor.
Best of luck. ...Read more

1st trimester nausea is emetrol safe?

It has never been tested in pregnant women and really can't be for ethical reasons. However, there really is not anything in it that would potentially cause problems in the first trimester. The best answer is to ask your ob-gyn. ...Read more

See you docto: That a lot of vomiting and as you vomit, you are losing vital electrolytes and water & if this keeps up & will end up being hospitalized. So, if you can't keep anything down, including water, call your doctor or be seen today at the urgent care center, and get medical help. More important if you are also pregnant and need to be tested if you haven't been already. Being constipated isn't good either ...Read more

Every time I take liquid pepto I vomit. Currently on antibiotic (metro) for tooth infection - super nauseated. What can I take? Disallowed emetrol.

Conflict: Pepto Bismol (bismuth subsalicylate) can deactivate antibiotic. Report its use to the Dentist that prescribed the antibiotic. Antibiotic will not cure dental infection but will reduce its severity until you run out of pills, then infection worsens again. You need Root Canal treatment or Extraction. Call your Dentist for support. ...Read more

What is best pain medication?

There are none...: Even the strongest opiates only "take the edge off" for people in chronic pain. Meds are only one part of dealing with the pain. A useful tool, but pain is so necessary for survival that we are not "allowed" to monkey with it much. In acute pain, the transition from miserable to less miserable can be great. In chronic pain, it's just part of the plan. ...Read more
