Good advice everyone, I started feeling worse after posting, my mouth started overwatering, my stomach was turning so I tried eating anything I could to settle my stomach, like chicken noodle soup and crackers... But unfortunately I got sick anyways :(

Good news is it was dry heaves. My throat really really burned from the stoamch acid, so I ate some light yogurt and it really sooted my throat.

I went to bed and felt all better in the morning.

I will not take any meds on an empty stomach again unless it says I have to.

Thanks everyone for your support, I feel better! (and learned a lesson!)

Eat at least 30 minutes before you take your medication.

Most of my nausea (apart from balance issues) came from not eating enough. When I cut back 250-450 calories /day I would often wake in the middle of the night suffering from nausea, lightheadness and absolutely starving. I went back up in my calories and reduced them gradually. It gave my body a chance to get used to the change.

When it affected me, I would have some anti-emetic and 1/4hr later have something light to eat - perhaps a banana and/or some yoghurt to tide me over until my next meal.

I Have horrible restless legs that keep me from falling asleep and staying asleep...

I take medicine for it.

I didn't eat much today because I worked midnights and slept much of the day. When I got up, I drank some water and ate a little bit, did a few things around the house, and then later went back to bed...

I took my medicine on an empty stomach and 15 minutes later woke and thought I would throw up.

So now I am eating some soup, crackers, pretzels... anything to help settle my stomach, I really don't want to throw up.

What do you do when you are nauseous?
I know from now on I will eat with my meds.
