Hi. Welcome to JustAnswer. I shall try my best to assist you while you are corresponding with me.
Where is the pain? And how many times has she vomited in a day?
In the area of her internal stitches and she vomits, or attempts to vomit every 45 minutes or so
Well, for the retching and the nausea, you can start her on Meclizine (OTC) twice a day, it is a good antiemetic.
You will need to stop or decrease her tramadol, since tramadol is notorious for causing nausea and vomiting.
Is that a prescribed drug or can I get it over the counter?
It is an OTC drug.
Thank you so much. I had not realised that Tramadol could cause vomiting. Is that normal after 4 weeks of no nausea at all?
You can also use Dimenhydrinate, if Meclizine is unavailable in your area.
Yes, nausea and vomiting with tramadol is unpredictable, it can occur at any point in time while on the medication.
I do not think Tramadol is the root cause of the nausea and the vomiting but it sure is an aggravating factor.4
If the symptoms get worse over the next 12 hours, then you should seek help from the A & E.
Thank you so much. I have no problem going to A&E but they are under so much pressure at the moment as we all know
Yes, I understand that. Keep a low threshold for going to the A&E if this gets worse even after the anti emetic.
Hope she gets well soon, best wishes and please do leave a positive rating for the service.
Thank you . I will
