Chronic Nausea after Ibuprofen Use

I used ibuprofen pretty often each day for about two weeks for severe pain in my hand and finger joints.  I began to have chronic nausea, got off the ibuprofen, started taking Prevacid and Pepcid Complete, then Reglan per doctor's prescription.  Bad side effects from Reglan--irritability, dizziness, depression,sleepiness.  Got off of it.  After about 4 weeks, I still have some nausea and only want to eat starches and sugars.  Had gallbladder removed 6 months ago.  Felt this same type nausea before it was removed.  How long does it take for the stomach to heal after Ibuprofen irritation that went on for several weeks?

I can't answer your question about how long healing takes but I can relate to being sick after taking ibuprofen.  That's one that's made me vomit.  Though I haven't taken it in a long time.

I had my gallbladder out 5 months ago.  Hopefully, you'll get relief soon.  Maybe it just takes a little more time since that stuff is down right nasty.

Good luck.

Hi.  I can relate to nausea from Ibroprofen.  I can only take one pill maybe 2 a day or I get sick.  If I lay off a few days, it gets better.  I can colon surgery alittle over 3 months ago so was alternating that with the pain meds.  I have acid reflux so I have to make sure I take my Prevacid or I couldn't even take that little bit of IB.  It is very hard on the stomach.
