Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
First, thank you for being so helpful. I am not looking forward to another few weeks of this, that is for sure!
Now, I did call the Dr who is on call for my other Dr while she is on vacation. I purchased Bonine OTC, and I have it here in my home. When I asked if I could take this, the nurse called me back and said the Dr said not to take it, and that my symptoms should subside in a few days. I was irritated to say the least.
The box just says to take one tables one hour prior to travel(And I am assuming this is a drug similar to Dramamine, correct?). And once a day it looks like. So is that what I should do? Just take one a day and it is good for 12-24 hours?
So with the medication I am currently on, it IS safe to take the Bonine then, correct?
The other medication you mentioned, is that OTC or prescription only? And would that be in addition to, the Bonine, or in place of?
Trying to get this other Psych Dr to listen is not easy. And I am not sure he/she will even return my call for dosage instructions on the Bonine.
My regular Psych Dr will not be back until Monday.
Thank you and I look forward to your response.
I asked the pharmacist about taking the Bonine and he said it doesn't interact with the other drugs. So I am going to try it, just like you stated. I will start off with one, and see if it helps. If it doesn't, then I will have to wait until my Psych Dr returns next week.
Basically the on call Dr just doesn't care and doesn't think it will work. He said that I will be "normal" in a few days. Which is false information.
As long as it doesn't interact with my other drugs, it can't hurt.
I would like to leave this question open in case I have another question about the Bonine.
I received a call from my primary care Dr and she said to go ahead and take the Bonine as directed. So I just took 2 about an hour ago. I think I feel a little better actually.
Thank you for the help!!
