Depending on how long I was able to hang out, before my ride home, I have had a range of puke experiences. The longer I can hang out, the better off I am.
I have been given zofran, but the kicker was the last booster, where they added phenargen to the injection. Wow. I still felt like a helium balloon, and it was kind of like trying to talk after going to the dentist, but I got home and ate everything in the fridge. No puking, and not feeling totally beat up.
Troches have never given me any issues. I am coming up on 2 years for clinic visits, but I didn’t start troches until last summer. I started with 1/4 of one. I have done halfs. Lately I do a full one, but I take it when I go to bed. I have been told here and by my provider that the medicine will do what it will do whether or not I am conscious. I actually think that it might work better with a smaller dose awake, but with a 10 hour day, come home and get cleaned up, then fix dinner, there isn’t much time mid-week unless I do it at bedtime. It does help. I wake up feeling a little lighter.
I do my best to let it dissolve and keep it all under my tongue (or slosh it around my cheeks and under tongue) as long as I can keep it there. I have read that absorption is more effective with tongue and cheek tissue than the GI route.
Oddly enough, if I take it first, then go to bed a bit later it keeps me awake. If I take it when I get into bed, I notice it coming on about the time I drift off. Odd dreams, I’ll tell you.
I have also been told by my provider that a smaller dose (troche/partial) as an attitude adjuster is probably better than full one, trying for “infusion jr.”. I’ve got a week off coming up, maybe I’ll manage enough time to try more conscious attempts.
