Has anyone experienced severe nausea from their prescribed medication? Any information you can share on how you were able to overcome this problem (e.g., timing of meds, with or without meals, etc) would be greatly appreciated.
I have recently experienced deterioration in my left arm and it is difficult for me to function without medication. My doctor prescribed an increased dosage of meds (see below) which make me feel extremely nauseated.
25/100 Carbidopa/Levodopa-> Suggested dosage 2 pills, 3 times per day
Pramipexole dihydro-> .25 mg 1 pill, 3 times per day
When I take this dosage, I feel extremely ill, to the point I cannot function.
My doctor suggested I take Prilosec, which did not combat the nausea.
Medication Actually Taken (to avoid nausea)
I have currently been taking half of the reocmmended dosage of the Carbidopa/Levodopa (1 pill, 3 times per day)
However, with this dosage I still have tremors, numbness, stiffness, and pain in my left arm, which is making day-to-day tasks difficult.
I have pretty much given up on this site. Hardly anyone posts or answers anything and the one person who does is just trying to sell herbal supplments to us.JHS
