Perhaps her doctor could give her something for it. Sometimes ginger ale or ginger itself helps nausea, and some saltines. If it is severe I would say talk to her doctor about it, he may know of something else for it.

Hello j smith. Possibly an adjustment to her dose. If thats possible. If not that then her dose be spaced apart to minimize the nausea. Best of wishes to you both, pledge

As previously suggested, check with her doctor. I have been on Vimpat for over a year now and have had nauseau at varying degrees. my doctor split my dose from 1 time a day, to a morning and a night dose. This helped yet I found I continue to need to eat at very consistent times and snack every two hours. I try to eat fruit, nuts and protein snacks. My family has been a big help with my regular eating schedule. Good luck to her and you.
