what to take with meds?

I have a post that my pain meds are making me sick. I just got "sick" again. Usually I eat something small like a nutri-grain bar or crackers. I am wondering if I need something that will coat my stomach rather than just fill it. I don't like milk and am slightly intolerant, but I was wondering if drinking a shake like product would be good (like nourische) or eating some yogurt. I don't have problems with those products. I don't want to go stock up on them either if they won't help. So, what do you think? Should I eat yogurt or something similar instead of a small snack?

Re: what to take with meds?

You should eat a real meal if your meds are making you ill. If I take my Perk's on an empty stomach or with say a muffin, I get "stoned & ill". I get an upset stomach and become light headed. Now I make certain that I've had a meal before taking my meds.
Some people can take these things on an empty stomach some can't.

Re: what to take with meds?

my doc changed me to loritab. She said it isn't as hard on the stomach. I still get ill even when I eat a whole meal. But, if I just ate and two hours later the med isn't working, then I try to eat a little something before I take another. Oh well. Just will have to wait and see if the Loritab works better. I do remember that percocet made me sick back in 1999 when I broke my leg. Good thing to remember in the future.
