Zofran (ondansetron)? That one works great for me, probably because it acts on the vagus nerve. I've been given phenergan (promethazine) and it was horrible - I'm not sure if it was because it adversely interacts with another medication I must take (pharmacists and docs are clueless - they never caught it) or because it's an anti-cholinergic. For people with what I have, anti-cholinergics can sometimes cause some pretty weird reactions on their own.
I wish I could get another prescription for zofran. The nausea in part is from my NCS, which is being treated by a cardiologist - I doubt anti-nausea meds are really something he prescribes often. But who knows?
mews2much - You have a lot of possible triggers. Are you keeping a journal? You really need to do this, write down everything you can. Food you ate, what you drank, what that food might have been seasoned with, weather, if you exposed and breathing in any sort of irritating smells/chemicals. This could really help doctors figure out possible causes a lot quicker.
Would you (and anyone else reading) believe that capsicum is a common headache and migraine trigger? Yet it's not a food intolerance that many are aware of even existing.
