Having trouble eating~~~

Geez, this is a lot harder than I thought it would be...

I am having a difficult time eating. I am taking 40 mg of Nexium, twice a day and is finally helping with the gagging while eating. Now I have the skitters (runs) for the fifth day so when I do manage to eat the food runs right through me. I have been able to drink plenty of water but feel weaker and weaker. I am also doing so much better mentally and emotionally; been taking 25 mg of Zoloff. I have been having some stomach pain and constapation. I am taking 1000mg of rib and I am in week five of tx. Genotype 1a and VL~17million. My doctor doesn't want to cut back the rib but I really feel knocked out from it...extremely tired.

What is good to eat that I can get down without feeling like vomitting? I am managing some instant oatmeal, dried toast, and yogurt.  Will this side effect get better????????
...NEVER thought I would say...I would have to force myself to eat;good thing I needed to loose some weight anyway <grin>

Thanks for your help...Luckie2

sorry you are going thru this. i'm sick to my stomch most of the time. I've lost 40lbs at week 6 and didn't need to. What I have had the most luck w/is slim fast am/slim fast in the afternoon if i can handle it, then chicken noodle soup for dinner when i can handel that. Anything else just seems like i swallowed a brick and makes me sick. I wish you the best. Hope you start to feel better. Peace, Kelly.
