I have to take laxactives bc of horriable constiaption (due to side effects from medicine)and can not go any other way.

When I would eat an hour to 2hours later I would be throwing up. This has been going on for a month now. It doesnt matter what I eat or when I eat. I have tried very bland food and still the probmlem is there.

I am not belemic nor do I want to be.

  • Are you sure your constipation is caused by medicine? You might be looking at a stricture or something simular. You definitly need to see a doctor about these problems. You could be looking at a potentially serious symptom. Kiera

  • any other symptoms? you said you were taking medicine for something, what illness is that? Also, it is possible you have an obstruction, which would make sense since you cannot eat anything at all.

  • My son is 15yrs old and has been vomiting since sunday night at 11pm. I took him into a minor emergency on Monday. They gave him 4 IV bags and Promethazine to stop the vomiting. He took one pill at 9pm and woke up at 140am and is vomiting again. Should I take him to the ER?

  • cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome:Cannabis is a common drug of abuse that is associated with various long-term and short-term adverse effects. The nature of its association with vomiting after chronic abuse is obscure and is underrecognised by clinicians. In some patients this vomiting can take on a pattern similar to cyclic vomiting syndrome with a peculiar compulsive hot bathing pattern, which relieves intense feelings of nausea and accompanying symptoms. In this case report, we describe a twenty-two year-old-male with a history of chronic cannabis abuse presenting with recurrent vomiting, intense nausea and abdominal pain. In addition, the patient reported that the hot baths improved his symptoms during these episodes. Abstinence from cannabis led to resolution of the vomiting symptoms and abdominal pain. We conclude that in the setting of chronic cannabis abuse, patients presenting with chronic severe nausea and vomiting that can sometimes be accompanied by abdominal pain and compulsive hot bathing behaviour, in the absence of other obvious causes, a diagnosis of cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome should be considered.This could be a problem. Typically for the older people but you can not rule out a youngin for experimenting and this being a side effect. Just something else to consider, It is also very much out of the realm of normal diagnosis and definatly something to talk to your doctor about if you smoke a bit of weed now and again.
