Even after two years, I occasionally get nausea. It was pretty bad the first week or two but is no longer an issue. Please consult your doctor if the nausea is severe.
When it comes to avoidance, I have found nothing the works consistently. Oddly, for me, a cup of Earl Grey tea in the morning helps. Some have tried crackers and hard candies. I am told that the issue is similar to what some pregnant women get during morning sickness. Perhaps those remedies will help.
allison; This is real common with this medication for most people more so if you just started it.But the good news most people this side effect goes away within a few weeks and from what I have read from many people using this is ginger tea, and salt crackers helps them get through this period of starting this medication which most can expect this problem for one to two weeks then it should get better or you can talk with your doctor and see if there is anything else you can use. Good luck.
