    Injury Claim in Stratford-on-Avon

    How to deal with medication that makes you sick, and make an injury claim

    If you have suffered a serious accident or illness then your doctor will probably prescribe you a series of different medications to help you to recover more quickly and easily. Often antibiotics will be used to help prevent infection and help you to recover quickly, but whilst these are fantastic for helping you to get better, they are also more than likely to cause stomach upsets or even to cause you to vomit.

    The problem with medication that makes you vomit is that it isn’t staying in your system for long enough to provide you with the help that you need from it. Here are some things you can do if your medication is making you sick.

    • Tell your doctor. The first thing to do if any of your medication is making you sick or having unwanted side effects is to tell your doctor. There may be another type of medication they can try which will work the same but not have any of the side effects, or the side effects may indicate something to your doctor that will help them to treat you.
    • Eat something. Many types of antibiotics are so strong that they make you sick if they touch your stomach lining when there is nothing there to protect it. Make sure that you have eaten something 20 minutes before taking your antibiotics and see if this works.
    • Drink plenty of water. As with eating something, water may help to flush the antibiotics through your system without letting them rest too long and thus make you sick. Even if you are still sick after taking them, drinking lots of water should make this easier on you.
    • Stop taking it. If you find that no matter what you do you are still vomiting soon after taking your medication, stop taking it and go back to the doctor. There is no point continuing with a treatment that won’t be helping anyway as you keep vomiting.
