    Am wondering if anyone else out there had any pain meds other than codiene or hydrocodone???? I have also tried Morphine Sulphate w/whirlys too. I asked my Dr for Demerol but he won't give it to me (I don't understand why if morphine is ok?!). Does anyone have any suggestions?

    hi pixie, i know that when ever i take percocet i get really nauseated as well.. i just take an over the counter(they have this med at almost all stores--even gas stations) nausea med for "motion sickness" like...Dramamine(?sp) there are other ones but are basically the same ingredient..when i take that i am just fine and have no nausea...hope that helps.

    Thanks for the responses, especially Ami. I never would have thought to use Dramamine! I went to the Dr yesterday & he switched me to Hydromorphone. I am nervous about getting sick & I did not read the posts til today so I will start it after getting the Dramamine. Of course, my insurance does not cover klonopin (thinks that what it was?) that he prescribed to help w/restless legs so I will have to call him again today & get that switched now. Am on state insurance here & this happens alot darn it!

    The suggestion of phergren was a great one! I am on opiod pain control, and nausea can be a problem. Phenegren taken with your pain med, not only gets rid of the nausea, but actually adds to the effectiveness of the pain reliever, a great added benefit.
    Best wishes,LL
