Question: emesis w/ teeth brushing
|scription - Sat Sep 29, 2007 8:12 pm||
I am a 29-year-old female with vomiting with teeth brushing, and gagging at others times during the day for several months. Currently on sertraline, with occassional alprazolam use for panic attacks. No past surgical history. Noncontributory family history. Not pregnant. Smoker of approximately one pack per day. Thank you.

It is likely that your throat has a bit of an exaggerated gag reflex.
Unfortunately, I'm not sure how best to treat this.
Perhaps you would be able to get some good information by seeing an Ear, Nose, and Throat doctor.
Sorry I can't be of more help.
