Does anyone have any personal suggestions for how to get rid of the nausea and dizziness from my medicine. I take a lot and it can get really bad sometimes as to where I need to just take a nap to get rid of it. My doctor can’t do much it’s because of what type I take and how much. Lamotrigine, Zonisimide, and Divalproex.
My Doctor has me take
Calcium pills, (which help your bones), because he told me 1 of my epilepsy meds.
decreases the am't i'm
required to have.
Recently I was put on a different generic lamotrigine. It made me dizzy &
I knew I was over medicated. I’d be feeling fine, take my meds, then in a few minutes it would “hit”me. After talking with my doctor, I spread the dosage out during the day. Rather than just 2x day. It has been great. Using my timer helps me remember to take them
I have the same problem with dizziness after I take my medication, but I've found the solution to that problem for me. I always try to EAT a meal just before I take my medication! I take my meds. at 08:00 and 20:00 so I take them after breakfast and dinner. If I only have a small meal then I do get dizzy/cross-eyed. But if I eat enough then I don't have any problem. If I can't eat for whatever reason then I try to at least drink a bunch of water first. Good luck! Jeff
I use ginger and it works great. The candy Ginger Chews is nice to have in the ourse or pocket but for when I am at home suffering from nausea and dizziness I drink non-alcoholic ginger beer. When I was a Doula I also recommended ginger to my clients. You can cut a few thing slices off a fresh ginger root and make a tea out it. All the best as you try and find something to help. Hugs.
To put it straight & direct, I can put it in two words; Nutrition and exercise THIS WILL SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM. And I gladly and confidently repeat, WILL solve your challenge.
Not just saying that it should be better, or whatever, ... But as a councillor I with confidence say ; make changes in your nutrition and exercise, you will be making significant changes in your life
... I would like to conclude with these words; I am telling you this, because I myself suffered from similar symptoms and that is where I found a great change i.e. solution, in exercise and nutrition.
