Can’t keep food down


Recommended Posts

I take a cocktail of lamictal, latuda, and lithium (with some gabapentin thrown in) and for about three or four days haven’t been able to hold food down (a mixture of a bad reaction to a generic Prilosec, anxiety, and probably an actual physical illness too). 
 

I’m feeling like my meds are worn off, since I keep vomiting them, and it feels absolutely awful. I’m a bit of a wreck. 
 

Anyone with any experience with this? OTC antiemetics? I’ve made appointments with my psych, PCP, and therapist, just need to get through till then.

You need to be very careful with this, especially if it constant, lithium and lamictal are two meds where you really don't want to mess with the levels. I might call up the PCP and ask specifically what is advisable/safe to take

I’m glad your doctor caught that. Did you have to get a blood test?

No, the symptoms were obvious enough to her, plus I had a recent lab at 1.2, so that was the likely culprit. I’m getting it checked in a week. 
 

I had nausea/vomiting/diarrhea, thirst, peeing a ton, tremors, big twitches, blurred vision and eye soreness (didn’t know that was a thing), extremely low energy, headaches, and fogginess. There may be a few others but that’s what I remember. I was too foggy (duh) to put it all together. I was ready to call my eye doctor, neurologist, see my PCP… I’m glad my pdoc put it all together
