tly since I'v e begun taking prescription Luvox 150mg at bedtime for my fibromyalgia, and other chronic pain conditions (none of which have cures). I try to keep something in my stomach and sometimes it helps but the nausea comes back relentlessly. I've told my dr. about this side-effect and he said to hang in there as alot of times the initial side-effects will go away after you get used to the medicine. I believe this as I've been and currently take several different meds for my health conditions and depression for many, many years now. I begun the Luvox at a smaller dosage in Dec. '09 and had the exact same nausea problem and it did eventually after over 1 and 1/2 months get better but since then my dosage has needed increasing as my dr. says i'm not even in the therapuetic level yet to help me, so the nausea is going to be a constant it seems for a while at least till I can tell if its helping the depression or not. I'm also very interesed if anyone has had any sucess or info on taking Topomax/& or Provigil for depression related symptoms?
Ask the doctor if you can take the medicine at 9:00 p.m. and last meal at 6:00 p.m? If you do not eat after 6 p.m. then it gives your food time to digest before you lay down. At 9 p.m. take your medicine. When the food is starting to empty your stomache.
Another pain medicine you might be able to take with little side effects:
Is Subutex, as it works on people who have chronic pain when nothing else works. Remember you do not want Suboxone... it is Subutex.
For the life of my I cannot think of that patch or pill you take for getting sea sick. If you ask your pharmacy they would be able to tell you and you do not need a script for it as far as I know. It's been a long time since I went off shore fishing. But it works on nausea. Very well as a matter of fact. We went out one day off shore fishing when the waves were 6-8 feet. Everyone was getting sick, even the guys that work on the boat. Dramamine, that's what it is called. Works great. And definitely non addicting. Good luck sweetie--- Kimmie1
You can try ginger root capsules, which can help, and they won't make you drowsy like Dramamine will. Dramamine may be faster and more effective, but ginger root is an all-natural alternative that might be worth trying. Try taking one or two capsules midway between dinner and bedtime and see if that helps. You can take ginger root a couple times a day, so I don't know if that might help you, to take one capsule in the morning and then one at night -- you may want to try doing it a few different ways at different times of day and see what works for you, if it works for you (it doesn't work for everyone). Good luck, and hope you feel better soon! I take Topamax too, by the way. :) Wishing you all the best . . .
There aren't any really good OTC anti-nausea drugs, although I found some relief with Dramamine or any of the other motion sickness drugs. This may give you some relief. Have you asked your doctor for a prescription for nausea? Phenergan and a couple of others are helpful.
