Tigan 300 mg. capsule - brand name
Trimethobenz 300 mg. capsule - generic
My Rx is to take 1 capsule by mouth up to 3 times daily as needed for nausea.
I took the first one this morning. And, it's working. The cost is that my eyes are trying to close because it causes drowsiness. The nurse at my specialist's office warned me about this and said that it was usually a prominent side effect.. no kidding, she wasn't kidding!
Regardless, I will tolerate the sleepiness if this means I'm not worshiping the porcelain god in the bathroom each morning.
Isn't it ironic, however, that you need one pill (Mirapex) to help control the PD, and another pill (Tigan) to control the side effects of vomiting from the Mirapex.
This feels like a crazy viscous cycle that this is starting to turn into. Isn't it?
The doctor had wanted me to try ginger, but since I already make ginger tea, he prescribed the Tigan instead.
It's apparently the one anti-emetic (anti-nausea) drug that you can take with PD medications. You can't take phenergan or benedryl or things like that due to the contradictions.
I'm going to go lay back down. I hope that this will not be a daily thing because I'm worried nothing will get done if I'm sleeping all day between the two medications - Tigan and Mirapex!
