Is there any anti emetics/ anti nausea drugs that I can take for severe nausea? I have allergies to all available. Any suggestions to safer ones?

Allergist can help: An allergist can review the reactions a person has had to medications and determine the next course of action.

Sis overdosed in trazodone, doxylamine, lorazepam, anti-emetics over 24h ago. Sleeps a lot, feels dizzy. Will the effects increase or wear down? Help

Sis overdosed in trazodone, doxylamine, lorazepam, anti-emetics over 24h ago. Sleeps a lot, feels dizzy. Will the effects increase or wear down? Help

Bad combo: These medications are all sedating and have a potential to interact depending on the dosage taken. Lorazepam ingestion can be reversed with a medication called flumazenil (clonazepam). It sounds like you're quite concerned about your sister. .. Going to the ER and making sure that she receives the proper medical and (more importantly) psychiatric care is definitely your best bet. Hope that helps! ...Read more

Of three anti-emetics (ativan, benadryl, (diphenhydramine) and zofran) used on a pediatric oncology floor, why is ativan used?

Of three anti-emetics (ativan, benadryl, (diphenhydramine) and zofran) used on a pediatric oncology floor, why is ativan used?

It works for some: Each of the three drugs you listed work by targeting a different mechanism to help battle chemotherapy-induced nausea. It is not uncommon for a patient to require a schedule of all three, depending on the chemo being administered and the individual patient. Ativan can help with anxiety, but it is also an anti-emetic. Reglan (metoclopramide) is also commonly given with Benadryl to help fight nausea. ...Read more

Is it true that ritalin (methylphenidate) and Adderall can cause tardive dyskinesia? I thought only anti-emetics and anti-psychotics could do this.

Tardive dyskinesia: Tardive dyskinesia is a permanent uncontrolled twitching of the mouth, tongue and lips. Usually caused by hypersensitivity of Dopamine receptors in the substantia nigra in the brain stem after long term use of anti-psychotic medications.

Oncology/Pancreatic Cancer: Can the anti-emetics granisetron and ondansetron both (combo)as 5-HT3 receptor antagonists be taken at same time for CINV?

Oncology/Pancreatic Cancer: Can the anti-emetics granisetron and ondansetron both (combo)as 5-HT3 receptor antagonists be taken at same time for CINV?

No, Take one at a tim: Granisetron and Ondansetron are very similar drugs. Oncologists will chose one or the other but not both of them at the same time because there is no further benefit if you combine them. But one may work better than the other, so switching around is not unreasonable, if required. ...Read more

Is nux vomica safe to use for post-op nausea/vomitting after orthopedic surgery? Have not had good luck with other anti-emetics.

Homeopathic: Homeopathic nux vomica is very safe, and depending on your specific symptoms could be very effective. My colleague is correct that it's prepared from a poisonous substance containing strychnine -- but the manufacturing process dilutes this while retaining the healing properties. Homeopathic remedies interact with your healing system, an energetic aspect of you with wide-reaching effects. ...Read more
