... remeron 5 days ago but nothing so far. its suppose to make you gain weight and bring your appetite back. i take zofran for nausea but it doesnt always work like tonight. does any one have any suggestions on how to not throw up? my dr just says 'take your zofran' which i think i am finding a new dr. dee145
Zofran should help. I can't think of anything better that may help with nausea. The link below has names of other medicines which may help. Please discuss with your doctor. He/She may want to prescribe something else.
I was on Gleevec for CML for 21/2 yrs. Everytime I went into the Drs. office I lost 5 lbs. I just lost my appetite. My taste & smell changed. Things smelled really strong. I would get sick in the middle of the night. My platelets were alittle low & I ended bleeding into my stomach. The Dr. had my stomach scoped & I had a raw spot in the bottom of my stomach. So watch for coffee ground colored throw-up. That's what it looks like when you have a bleed. I took Prevecid 40mg. 2x a day for stomach acid. That worked most of the time. I ended up losing 55 lbs. Zofran takes a few minutes to work on me & I don't end up taking it until its to late & nothing can stop it (getting sick). I had to change my meds from Gleevec to Sprycel due to anemia & low platelet count. I've been off gleevec for 5 days & gained 5 lbs. Haven't started taking Sprycel yet. Kind of scared I'll get sick. You are the 1st person that I know that has the same problem with Gleevec I did! Try the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society web site community page. They have a CML or any of those diseases and alot of ?'s & answers. It has helped me. I know I didn't give you an answer, but I just had to let you know you are not alone. lls.org is the web site.
