my pain meds are making me woozy (nauseous) which is typical for me in the past. Just wondering what I can do to alleviate this issue - blec -

Have you tried taking them with a dry carbohydrate (saltine crackers, bread)? You can also take antacids with many of them, but should check with your pharmacist first - antacids prevent some meds from being absorbed properly.

If you need to be on them longer than just today I would call and ask for something different, hopefully there is one out there that won't make you feel that way. I have that problem with Percocet so I just ask for something else if I have to take anything.

Hope you feel better!

Coke. The syrup in it helps settle the stomach.

Have already decided not to take tonights dose(s) and call the doc in the morning.

My list of "cannot tolerate"s is growing Knee feels fine right now, Mark's pain didn't really start til day 2-3 after his surgery. Right now I'd choose pain pain over nausea - ugh

nausea is no fun, what so ever. Last night I felt like my head was floating, I think I just had too much medications in my system I had to lay down and close my eyes.

hopefully you get some relief today if you need to take more meds.

I slept well last and it still feels fine this morning. I took a few Ibuprofen to start the day and will ask the physical therapist what she suggest for OTC relief.
