Nausea and Saphris and Seroquel

After some brainstorming with Shannon this evening, I've come to the conclusion that Saphris controlled my nausea, but Seroquel never did. I remember when I was on this dosage of Seroquel several weeks ago, and I was having nausea and hunger at the same time, so obviously the nausea was still around.

So Saphris helped with the nausea, but made me gain weight, which is dangerous with the kidney disease and therefore unacceptable. And nothing else has really helped with the nausea, so I'm most likely SOL there.

Well, maybe we can get the mood and anxiety stuff sorted, so that we can then maybe come up with a workable solution for the nausea. If Saphris helps, then there's bound to be something else that does, too.

In the meantime, I'll grab my meals when I can. And get used to nausea.

a) have you tried ginger? my mother has diabetes and kidney disease- she says wonderful things about ginger snaps. (and other forms of ginger, but i can't stomach them at all so i have no idea what they are)

b) if you can find it- coca tea- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coca_tea is brewed from the same leaves as cocaine but for medicinal purposes, mainly stomach issues. this one i can personally vouch for (altitude sickness in Cusco led to 24+ hours worshiping at the porcelain throne until i finally agreed to the tea- up and about within an hour)

c) i wish you the very best luck in finding the best combination of meds for you- i am a psychologist by training. for some of the issues, try altering your foods and vitamin intake; walking in the sun (possibly even getting a sun lamp considering the amount of sun in the bay area); and exercise- i understand you're tired and not up to it often (see A) but the benefits are amazing.
