"I come bearing... DRUGS"
I have great friends.

docorion told me about Emetrol this morning, and elfs brought me some just a few minutes ago. Thanks, guys.

Wish I had had it last night, but I've got it for tonight if necessary, and in the future.

Is it just me, or is it generally really frikken annoying that the really good anti-nausia drugs require a prescription, which make them completely unavailable to sufferers of rapid onset flu? It would take 3 days to get a script from my doctor, when I actually *needed* something with only a few hours warning in the middle of the night...

Emetrol is by prescription? It's in the cabinet at work, free for the taking, like it's OTC.

I'm pretty sure it's just fructose, dextrose, and phosphoric acid. I know for a fact that it's nasty, evil-tasting stuff, however. I wish you well with it.

No, it's OTC. It's basically the *only* OTC anti-nausea.

According to docorion, it's basically soda syrup, and if you have a local old-timee drugstore-and-soda-fountain that actaully sells bottles of cola syrup, to use it instead.

There are some really good antinausia drugs, that have the added benefit that they would have put me to sleep for 8 hours, but they are carefully controlled, and are basically "on an hours notice" available only if you're already *in* a hospital.
