Question: So I smoked meth for the first time 4 days ago, I felt high for a couple of hours then I became nauseous & been nauseous and throwing up since then. Sometimes when I wake up, I feel fine and then after walking around or doing some type of activities, I get nauseous again. What can I do to relieve the nausea for good.? Ever since then I constantly feel nauseous and don't know what to do. I try drinking water and eating crackers only but it seems to not help.

Brief Answer:
Use ondansetron

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for using Healthcaremagic.

I read your query and understand your concerns.

From the available description it appears that your chemoreceptor trigger zone is over stimulated with use of meth and there is need to use a medication which specifically acts on the particular receptor. In that regard you can go for ondansetron 4 mg two times a day. Since it is prescription only medication you will need to see a doctor in person to get it from pharmacy.


I hope this helps you.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.

I do not think ER visit is required

First of all I like to inform you that we as doctors are not legal enforcement agencies and just they will try to help you to the possible extent.

In addition I also feel that ER visit is not required and you can visit any local general practitioner or your primary care physician.

I hope this helps you.

My coworker complained today that her left arm was really sore and was having trouble pickup up her iced tea, tonight she called and said her arm was still extremely sore and that her left leg was swelling .

I have vertigo with a retracted ear drum. How does this happen? Over the past few years I have gone to my primary care and Ent with complaints about my ear leaking. They did not see anything. It would literally drain out. Now I have a bad case of vertigo since last Thursday and my primary care said I have a retracted ear drum. He put me on a steroid and sudafed and afrin . Said if its not better by Wednesday to go back o the Ent. What do you think?
