Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I'm 6 wks pregnant this week with my 3rd child and SICK as a dog!!!! My hubby went out to the pharmacy and got me Emetrol (OTC nauseau medicine) the only thing with this medication is that it's been spiking my blood sugar levels.. Has anyone else taken this OTC medicine and noticed these side effects ??

Can't really say I can be much help on this one ... sorry.

 

one question - are you T1 or T2 ... if you are currently on oral drugs such as Glucophage, you may want to switch to insulin to reduce nausea from the oral drugs ...

 

Just a thought ...

Hi njmommie, So sorry you are having to deal with the pg nausea, blood sugars & 2 little ones! Whew, sounds like you have a full plate! I have no experience with emetrol per say but I have learned that ANY liquid medicine (OTC or Rx) will spike me to the moon. I have much better results using meds in pill or capsule form. Have you asked your Dr for any suggestions?

Best wishes to you and the growing family.
