The best prescription medication for nausea is promethazine or Phenergan (brand name).
It also increases the narcotics
I threw up the first time I did china white. After that, I never threw up, except once or twice after 30 years. Some people I know get nausea from oxycodone
, but are fine when taking Norco (hydrocodone
However, if one takes hydrocodone there is a new drug on the horizon which is pure hydrocodone called Zohydro. They come in 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50mg time release formulations. Since it is pure hydrocodone, the Schedule perhaps will go up to a Schedule II. It will be on the market shortly, if the hype behind it goes away.
Soon, I'm sure many other opiates
will be approved for time release status, i.e., codeine
, dihydrocodeine, hydromorphone
. These are the three drugs
not time released yet, as far as I know. Hydrocodone (pure) is on the horizon, oxycodone, fentanyl
, and oxymorphone
all have ER formulations and are pure.
I feel some people just have an adverse reaction to opiates, and get nausea with them at first. Usually, once one has developed a tolerance, the nausea disappears. If it doesn't Phenergan or promethazine is probably your best bet to eliminate your nausea from opiates. Benadryl
is used when one is allergic to opiates and breaks out in hives and itches constantly. Usually codeine and morphine
cause this. Other opiates do not cause these side effects
. One just needs to see which one will suffice.
