... Glucophage to help with my insulin levels, however when I take it at night with Gleevec I get bad nausea, any known interactions between these 2 drugs?
I agree with Kaismama, if you have bad nausea taking these two medications together, is it possible to space them apart by an hour or two to decrease your level of nausea? If not, there are antiemetics that your doctor can prescribe you if it's that much of a problem for you. There's Phenergan (promethazine) and Zofran(Ondansetron), the most known prescribed antiemetics. To my best knowledge, Phenergan/promethazine, is the cheapest one. And it's quite effective, I personally think. I have a prescription for it to take with my pain medications. I had to take it daily the last time I had my pain patches increased in dosage, and I couldn't eat or keep anything down before I got my promethazine filled, and once I started taking that with my pain medications, I had no nausea whatsoever, but if I forgot to take my promethazine, I became very nauseous and threw up. I've heard good things about Zofran, though I've never personally taken it. But if cost is an issue for you, I would try the promethazine. As I've stated, I find it extremely effective for medication-induced nausea. Zofran is probably the most common antinausea medication given to cancer patients, though. Personally, though, I would try the promethazine first, and move on to the Zofran only if it was ineffective for you.
