Hello shellyduby101. Most likely it will, however you omitted to name the drug he is taking. Regards pledge

It depends on his age and the medication he's on as far as why side effects he will have and the drugs affect everyone differently since they directly effect the neurons in the brain.

Stimulants can have a nausea effect since they are in fact stimulants and have a "speedy" effect on the body. The vomiting could be an allergic reaction if there is no accompanying nausea.

Make sure he is eating before he takes his meds in the morning and subsequently, throughout the day as well. He may not feel like eating but a protein shake will even help with it, or at least it did for me. Again, everyone is different.

I hope this helps. Keep you head up, it will get better and catching it early and starting a medication/therapy regime will help him live a fuller life as he ages.

I wish I had discovered my diagnosis at an earlier age. I still struggle with the what-ifs now as an adult.

Hi Shelly,

Call the pharmacist he/she will know if it is a side effect of the Med. Don't give it to him until you call o.k. You may need another med for him.
