Question: medication for nausea
|susieQ1 - Mon Oct 01, 2007 6:22 pm||
I am very sensitive to meds & have had bad reactions to Phenergan & Antivert. I'm hoping you can recommend a medication less likely to have side effects. I have Meniere's & also need something to take b/4 surgery. I am 64 y o female & the 2 meds I mentioned cause my legs to burn & twitch/jerk. I feel like I am having some kind of seizure when I take them & that is with very low dose. Thanks.

You may want to talk with your doctor about getting a prescription for ondansetron (brand name Zofran) or one of its cousins in the same class.
Often, people with difficulty with other nausea medicines may be able to tolerate this class of anti-nausea medicines.
