Anyone have a problem with phenergan or zofran for nausea? I really need something to take for nausea from vertigo. Antivert/Mcclezine is not something I can tolerate. Can't find any of these on the list. Thanks much.

Alicia,

I've taken Phenergan and it makes me really really sleepy. I can't remember if I reacted to Zofran though.

Hope you find something that helps!!!

My neurologist switched me to reglan for nausea. It makes me sleepy, but then again, so does everything!

I take Phenergan. Yes, it does make me sleepy, but with repeated use the sleepy factor goes away. Or it did for me, anyway.

My only comment is start with the most tested drug and work your way up to Zofran if you need to. During chemo, I first tried phenergran, then Reglan and finally Zofran.

I just think if older drugs work why take a chance on a newer more powerful drug.

Good luck,

Lois

reglan messes with my mood. I'm super blue on it, which fades when the dose fades. apparently it does something to dopamine. I take tigan, which is pretty weak, and only takes the edge off nausea. I'm allergic to zofram.

I've never taken the drug you mentioned for vertigo. I did take phenergan for nausea during pregnancy, and I'm sensitive to it; it gives me convulsions. I think that's POTS related because the drug has warnings that it increases HR. Zofran worked for me, but it comes with gastro side effects. It is a big constipator! I took it for 7 months while pregnant. Messed with my IBS a lot.

I've taken phenergan for migraines and such in the past. It makes me kind of silly and really sleepy, but I'm pretty sure that's a normal reaction and I've never had any other reaction. I can tolerate Meclizine, though, and take it as I need it, so I don't know if you would react differently.
