New Medication Makes Me Nauseous?

A MyParkinsonsTeam Member asked a question 💭

I have recently changed medication to Stalevo and it's works reasonably well, however sometimes it makes me feel nauseous and gives me a sickly headache. This normally happens first thing in the morning or in the evening, I do try and take it with food and this makes no difference. I am reluctant to change as it does work well, has any else experienced this and have any advice?

A MyParkinsonsTeam Member

If the stalevo is still making you feel sickly you could try adding domperidone to mix. It's very effective at dealing with nausea.
