For Nausea/Vomiting "I can’t express enough how distressing this drug was for me. About 2 hours later I experienced what I thought was restless legs. I felt really anxious and hot and heart palpitations. This then turned into severe akathisia which is the most distressing thing I have ever gone through. It felt like every part of me was having a panic attack but my legs, buttocks and pelvis were the worst. Could not sit down had to keep pacing around. As soon as I tried to stand still and sit it felt like absolute torture because the only relief I got was having to constantly move my body and strain my muscles. I was so scared and felt like I was going crazy. This happened to me twice the second time was with a different medicine which apparently had the same ingredients but it was under a different name. I was given 2 valiums just to settle what felt like absolute nightmare. I’m sure for most it’s prob fine unfortunately for me it was the worst thing I’ve ever experienced."

For GERD "I was recently prescribed by the surgeon the Maxolon tablets for GERD . After five days I was super fine but it was combined with Nectizole. I am still on medication for almost almost fifteen days and now no more food get stuck in my chest. Side effect is minor there is little tremor on my lower lip but still to inform my doctor."
