Anthony Bray, MD : Hello!
Anthony Bray, MD : I'm sorry to hear that your girlfriend is feeling so bad ...
Anthony Bray, MD : it sounds likely that she may be ill with a gastroenteritis --- this could fit with the diarrhea for example ...
Customer: Thank you. I think she has a flu but I am not sure
Anthony Bray, MD : the nausea could be due to her migraine or GI illness.,.
Anthony Bray, MD : Does she have a regular medicine for her migraines???
Customer: No.
Anthony Bray, MD : That would be helpful if she had Zomig or Immitrex or Relpax or Maxalt which are migraine specific medicines ...
Customer: She took some Tylenol earlier
Anthony Bray, MD : Well over the counter Tylenol may help some with headache but other options by prescription would be better -- ( Exedrin is good over the counter for migraines but now the aspirin unit may irritate her stomach..)
Customer: she was fine his morning but after she went out to trace bell she started to have migraines then she started to feel tired.
Anthony Bray, MD : have her try Pepto Bismol for her nausea and diarrhea... One dose after each loose stool .. Max 7 doses per day and max 5 days ....
Anthony Bray, MD : Simple over the counter Dramamine it Benedryl or Emetrol may also help with nausea...
Anthony Bray, MD : I think she likely has gastroenteritis illness ( these are more often viral bit occasional bacterial )
Customer: Okay I will get her that.
Customer: Is there any OTC medication I could get for her to help her out?
Anthony Bray, MD : her diet should be mainly clear liquids -- soups/ Gatorade/ jello until 12 hours without vomiting....
Customer: Okay.
Anthony Bray, MD : important for her to avoid dehydration with this illness...
Customer: Okay.
Anthony Bray, MD : I think the illness triggered her migraine as secondary effect...
Customer: Her migraine is really bad and she said it hurts really bad.
Anthony Bray, MD : Yes she may benefit from the Pepto for her GI illness...
Anthony Bray, MD : Dramamine / Benedryl / or Emetrol for nausea ...
Customer: Okay, I'll go grab some for her.
Anthony Bray, MD : I would start with Tylenol for her migraine ... OTC Exedrin could be more helpful for migraines BUT this may be trouble with stomach irritation !!
Customer: Okay.
Anthony Bray, MD : i think she would benefit to see her doctor soon as in tomorrow if possible...
Customer: So mainly get bendryl, some soup/jello/Gatorade to help
Customer: Okay.
Anthony Bray, MD : I think prescription meds for her migraine headaches and nausea would help...
Customer: Okay, if it gets worser tomorrow we will go to a doctor.
Anthony Bray, MD : once she has not thrown up for 12 hours the. She may advance to bland diet --- carbs/bread/ rice/ potatoes / bananas/ apple sauce / soups... Good examples of bland type foods for the next 24 hours....
Anthony Bray, MD : Ok I hope that she feels better soon!
Customer: Okay.
Anthony Bray, MD : let me know if you have further questions!
Customer: Thanks doc for helping me out.
Customer: I will doc.
Anthony Bray, MD : I will be happy to get back with you!!
