Question Meds - side effects - June 8th 2010, 05:00 AM

My doc stuck me on Prozac and one of the side effects is that it makes me really nauseous. I was wondering if anyone knew something that would make it any better? And maybe suggestions for things I could eat that wont upset my stomache more?

Talk to your doctor and ask him to put you on a different prescription. I'm on citalopram right now. Maybe your body just isn't compatible with fluoxetine (prozac)

What doesn't kill us makes us weaker, until it eventually overpowers us to our eventual deaths. Life is about struggling as long as we can until our body mind and soul cannot take it anymore, and then we die.

That is one of the side effects of Prozac, or so my doc says. That happens when you are new to taking it. It is supposed to go away wtihin a few weeks, but to ease a stomache I am not sure. If it doesn't go away soon, you need to talk to your doctor and get switched!

If you just got on the medication then wait it out because it's like any other large change to your body. Many of the side-effects, except the lethal ones usually due to allergies, go away as your body normalizes to the medication. If it keeps up after a few months then go to the doctor if it's distressing you still. If you go now and say it's affecting you this way, the doctor will tell you to wait it out and unless it's severe, they'll change it. If you complain enough to the doctor, then they may change it but you'll probably get a similar reaction or some other unpleasant reaction, so just wait it out.

As for things to help with nausea, toast and gingerale. I get nauseous really easily. Hope this helps!

Love you-- Kayla c:

Ginger helps with nausea. Ginger tea or gingerale should help. Try and eat dry plain foods like toast or crackers. Your body should get used to the meds and will settle down.
