Hi,
This is my second battle with VF in three years. I'm taking Diflucan (4weeks) and am having horrible nausea! I don't remember the nausea lasting this long before. I'm also experiencing severe leg and arm twitching/jerking and difficulty walking. I'm down all day because of the nausea mostly.

Any of you have any suggestions or wisdom to share regarding the nausea?

Thanks for your help,
Dana

Most people experience the nausea, and even if you got away with it first, things have a way of changing. Are you taking the drug with food? That's the first step in helping with nausea. Make sure you are eating when you take this drug, an empty stomach will almost guarantee an upset stomach.

And you should be taking vitamin C also. You should be taking lots of vitamin C anyway, but it's especially important with this medication. For all health reasons I take 2000mg with breakfast and another 2000mg with dinner. And lastly, make sure you are not eating dairy products, especially when taking the meds. It's not a good mix, the dairy products will interfere with the meds and might contribute to nausea. Hope this helps.
