  • Stomach aches and stuff

    I'm just getting over a stomach bug, wasn't too bad thank God, have had worse,,,now DD 15 is down with it. I've always taken Gravol for nausea but, do not really like to take it unless I really have to. Is there anything else out there that works just as well but, doesn't give you the dopey feeling? I've tried Pepto Bismol caps and they really don't touch on the problem.

      OF COURSE, I KNOW IT ALL! LOL

      EMETROL IS OVER THE COUNTER, WORKS REAL WELL, CHERRY FLAVOR. I'M NOT FAMILIAR WITH GRAVOL, WONDER IF THEY'RE THE SAME?? THE CHEMICAL/GENERIC FOR EMETROL IS PHOSPHORATED CARBONHYDRATE. WHEN MY KIDS WERE LITTLE IT WAS LEMON/MINT FLAVORED, NASTY, BUT THE CHERRY IS MUCH BETTER TASTING. BUT YOU STILL HAVE TO BE ABLE TO HOLD IT DOWN! LOL

        I take phenagrin for nausea. Phenagrin is a perscriptive med, not over the counter.

            I remember someone telling me about that stuff when my 2 boys were young, the stuff was nasty and they'd freak out when I gave it to them so that was the end of that LOL!

              nothing for nausea here, but I do load them up on yogurt to put the good bacteria back in their belly.

                If no Phenergan on hand, do the Saltines and Ginger Ale, slowly, small amounts as can be tolerated. Sometimes those things just have to run their course.

                That other stuff will MAKE you want to barf. Yuk!!!

                  2 doctors gave me the best advice ever--never give anyone vomiting anything cold to drink, it has to be room temp. It has something to do with the cold making the stomach contract. The other, use 1/2 ginger ale and 1/2 coke mixed to ease vomiting and nausea.

                    We always used Emetrol...
                    Also, if you are going to drink a soda, you need to pour it from glass to glass to get the bubbles out. That's what the Doc told me when I had intestinal flu...
                    No carbonation.
                    Sorry you have been sick Mudder. Now that you are well and strong again, come on down & help me with my housework...lol!
                    Wow & you have snow too? How exciting!!

                              Could it be we are all Mothers, and have gone through this with our kids, good old experience. Of course Nu, well she is the professional in the group, and a mother
