Just for the record, the Metaclopramide tablets didn’t initially provide much help in quelling the feelings of nausea etc that I was suffering from over the bank-holiday weekend. However, by persevering with them (ie, taking them three times a day, irrespective of how I feel) I now seem to be feeling much better.
Of course, it’s hard to know if that’s due to the medicine building up in my system and overcoming the nausea, or if it’s simply that I’m no longer feeling as nauseous. However, the previous feelings of illness were so unpleasant (akin to the worst of hang-overs but with no sign of a respite, and no sense of “at least I had fun getting like this”) that I’m just going to continue to add them to my daily cocktail of drugs, on the basis that it makes life work again.
Which after all, is what it’s all about.
