Reglan for nausea

Cindy brought Erin to Sacramento this morning so that Erin could go to her appt with Dr. Adams this afternoon. Erin told Dr. Adams about her nausea and he said that it could be due to the pain medications she takes or it could be due to swelling in the brain. He said that the Zofran that she has been taking for nausea is intended for use during chemo and when used daily can become ineffective. ┬áHe prescribed Reglan which doesn’t become ineffective when used daily.

Erin decided to stay here tonight with us and get caught up on sleep. Cindy has to go into work for a while tomorrow and will take Erin back to Davis early tomorrow afternoon.

Dr. Adams thought that Erin seemed about the same with maybe a little more trouble with word finding. She had cancelled an appt with Adams last week when she was too tired to make the trip to Sacramento. He said that was fine, not to hesitate to cancel, essentially saying that the visits are just social. He suggested not returning until 6 weeks from now.
