I have had no luck with any of the usual anti-emetics (phenergan, reglan, zofran, compazine) and also just finished a trial of domperidone which I had to get from a canadian pharmacy as it is not available in states. So still no relief. Sometimes eating small meals with 'soft' consistancy helps, other times the only thing that helps is not eating. I have found a muscle relaxer, zanaflex, that was prescribed for my chronic headaches/migraines to be the only thing that helps. But, that puts me to sleep so is of limited use if I want a normal life!
I can't tolerate Phenergan because it causes me to hypoventilate. I may try it again at some point, but I guess I'd have to be taking a respiratory stimulant with it. (I'm not sure Theophylline is strong enough.)
At the moment I take Zofran. Unfortunately, I shouldn't be taking that either because of my arrhythmia. So, I'm kind of having some difficulty with controlling my constant nausea at the moment.
I recently tried an OTC chewable tablet called Nauzene that occasionally helps mild nausea, but isn't even close to strong enough to control the vomiting.
Please try over the counter car sickness medication!!! A pharmacist recommend it and it not only relieves the nausea but also takes a bit off the dizziness. Cheap too which is nice. I've been doing that for years and it is by far the best I've found (even over the prescribed anti nausea stuff)
Are you talking about dramamine (tried, no luck) or Bonine (aka meclizine hydrochloride), also tried and no luck. Also tried those arm bands, no luck. But maybe they can work for someone else, hope so! I think I am just a stubborn case.
