Customer Question

I have had ME for 24 years, now aged 65 and greatly improved, helped by low dose antidepressant SNRIs + tricyclics for pain only + until 3 months ago Domperidone for dreadful nausea (20 mg/day). Because of MHRA alert, GP told me to stop D abruptly which I did and it's been hell ever since, tried Lansoprazole and Stemetil, simply can't function with dreadful intermittent nausea......................all 'head' and mouth based, not gastric. GP says can't go back on it.........................what on EARTH can I do? Been on it >23 yrs yet dumped off it abruptly, withdrawal symptons not lessening : sick/bloat/sweat/shiver/constipation/foul taste..........................endless
