Will gilenya (fingolimod) cause balance problems. since taking it my balance worse. I keep vomiting. Neuro out of town! any OTC meds I can take?

Will gilenya (fingolimod) cause balance problems.  since taking it my balance worse. I keep vomiting. Neuro out of town!  any OTC meds I can take?

Why you taking it?: Gilenya (fingolimod) is for MS but your profile doesn't mention MS. Your "neuro" must have someone covering for him/her while he/she is out of town(!). (I hope you don't call your "neuro" that to his/her face; it would be very disrespectful.) Maybe you're having an MS flare. I can't think of anything OTC that treats nausea and vomiting. ...Read more

My daughter suffers from severe travel sickness . Has just used serc and stemital separately  on  27 hour plane trip with no effect ...Still vomiting  ...What is strongest or most effect meds she can take when travelling home ?

Varies among people: A primary care doctor, a neurologist, and an ENT specialist may be able to devise a plan of using one or two meds in different doses to find the best response for an individual patient. It would take some time to test the meds and doses (so wouldn't help as much for a one-time trip). If frequent travel is needed, a patient may be able to train herself do better, but training would also take time. ...Read more

Meds effect appetite by the time i take them I am not hungry hrs later i'm so hungry feel like i'm going to vomit. Protein shake ok or cause wgt gain?

Protein Shakes : It's not the protein as much as the calories in the shake. Not sure which meds you are on and why? If you have no choice but to take them, you might want to discuss your appetite problems with your doctor. A long term "liquid" diet is problematic in terms of maintaining adequate nutrition, unless you consult with a nutritionist first. I would get to the root of the problem and correct the meds. ...Read more

I'm in my 2nd trimester of pregnancy and my morning sickness has subdued. At night i take prenatal vitamins an hour after eating & i always feel very nauseous & i end up vomiting. Why is this happening?

I'm in my 2nd trimester of pregnancy and my morning sickness has subdued. At night i take prenatal vitamins an hour after eating & i always feel very nauseous & i end up vomiting. Why is this happening?

Maybe iron.: Prenatal vitamins have more iron in them than regular vitamins which may be upsetting your stomach. You could taking the vitamin as half after breakfast and half after dinner to see if that helps. I'd also take it right after dinner (don't wait an hour). You could try a different brand (but they all have iron). Start with half tab twice a day with food and let me know if it helps -. ...Read more

Would I benefit from imatrex as to just taking tylenol for my migraines? Usually behind one eye, zig zag around eyes, nauseated, throwing up at times. Can not take antihistamines, or OTC cough meds. gives me heart palpatations. Although I do use Alaway an

Yes: Tylenol (acetaminophen) does not really work that well for migraine and thus Imitrex would likely be far more effective. The earlier the better. Sometimes adding a NSAID may provide added benefits. If nausea prevents you from swallowing Imitrex , ask for a nasal spray version. ...Read more

My nephew 21 has autism has been throwing up for 5 yrs. he has had all kinds of test done by GI doctors  and can not find anything he takes nausea med?

Work w/ specialist: His autism doctor needs to be involved w/ the GI one. This is a fairly common symptom that can become a like a behavioral tic. So much depends on the specific person that it's hard to predict success, but it can be modified for some. The duration may make it harder, but have hope for a good behavior therapist! ...Read more

Im day 5 post tonsillectomy & just tried to eat but threw up. I have a terrible pain in my ears & haven't taken pain meds for 6 hrs. Should I take meds?

Im day 5 post tonsillectomy & just tried to eat but threw up. I have a terrible pain in my ears & haven't taken pain meds for 6 hrs. Should I take meds?

Yes: The 4th through 6th day after a tonsillectomy are often the worst because the septic crust breaks off of the tonsillar fossae are the raw surface is exposed to air. Therefore pain meds should not only be taken but you may need to continue to take them for 3 or 4 more days. Continue to drink as much as possible. Pain referred to the ears is very common. ...Read more

M 35, 160. took usual AM meds 40 prozac 40 pantoprazole 150 Wellbutrin (bupropion) 24 hr Claritin D. threw up 30 min later from overeating last night. take again?

M 35, 160. took usual AM meds 40 prozac 40 pantoprazole 150 Wellbutrin (bupropion) 24 hr Claritin D. threw up 30 min later from overeating last night. take again?

It depends: Ultimately my decision would depend on whether or not you saw the medications when you threw up. None of these medications are life-sustaining and therefore if you were to skip a day, nothing would happen. If you were sure that you threw up the medication, you could retake the Wellbutrin (bupropion). The others can definitely wait a day. ...Read more
