If I threw up my pain medication how long should I wait till I can take more?

If I threw up my pain medication how long should I wait till I can take more?

Depends!: If you threw up because of opioid-induced nausea you are taking too much or the wrong one. In either case talk to your doctor. It also depends on how long after you took the med and whether it is a immediate release or a sustained release compound. So you really need to talk to your doctor about these situations. ...Read more

What's a GOOD nausea/vomiting medication I could take besides Ondansetron? That won't make me drowsy. I take Ondansetron but it doesn't seem to help.

What's a GOOD nausea/vomiting medication I could take besides Ondansetron? That won't make me drowsy. I take Ondansetron but it doesn't seem to help.

Look harder: Nausea/vomiting may be gi-related (food poisoning, peptic disease, gastroparesis, due to biliary & pancreatic disease, gas/bloat syndrome, small bowel problems). Consider "central" causes: motion sickness, vertigo, migraine headache, brain problems (some very serious). Also, rule out infection (? Urinary tract), medication side effects, pregnancy, & even reaction to stress. Find & treat cause. ...Read more

My son had wisdom teeth removed 16 hours ago. He has been vomiting for the last 12 hours and cannot take pain medications. What should I do?

Call oral surgeon: I'd be concerned about dehydration as well as not being able to take pain medicine. Is your son swollen, bruised, is he still bleeding, did he have general anesthesia, hence the vomiting. Your oral surgeon knows all the particulars about your son's procedure and should have an emergency number for you to call! so don't waste any time, call now! ...Read more

Is GERD  a serious disease? My daughter is 3years old. Lately shes been vomiting and having diarea. I took her to the emergency not to long ago and she was diagnose with gastroesophageal reflux disease. She was under medication for dehydration and she was

Maybe,maybe not: We generally describe gerd as the return of stomach contents into the esophagus to the degree that heartburn, fussiness or weight loss develops. Since a dry burp has the same mechanics, it is not much of a stretch to say all kids have some reflux, but only some of them symptoms. It can be transient as part of a gut virus, or longer term.I find mild disease common but significant disease rare. ...Read more

In second stage lung cancer is it important to first take medication for blood coughing and vomiting, before starting the actual therapy?

In  second stage lung cancer is it important to first take medication for blood coughing and vomiting, before starting the actual therapy?

No 2 cases the same: In clinical stage ii non-small-cell cancer, the burning question may actually be "candidate for surgical cure". If you are vomiting at this stage, one burning question is possible brain metastases; if you have intractable bloody cough, we want to rule out a cancer-induced pneumonia. The decision to delay or proceed with chemotherapy is too tricky to be settled in 400 words. Good luck. ...Read more

Meniere's Syndrome: Inner ear, only one side ringing, vertigo (dizziness with nausea), may occur in families. Limit or eliminate caffeine, salt, chocolate. See a physician who treats these cases if the episodes occur often, consider an endolymphatic shunt (surgical procedure). Successfully works for many. Hearing aids do not work to reduce ringing. Some people outgrow vertigo, but not ringing. ...Read more
