I agree with Dr. Steve about the hydroxyzine. I take it all the time for nausea associated with migraines, but it is a prescription..and it sounds like your looking for an OTC remady.
They do have hydrocodone in 10/650 tablets 10mg hydro, 650 asap. They are also called lortab.
Caffiene, will help the stomach absorbtion. That is why it is in various meds. Tagament (Cimetidine) will also prob. help..here is al excerpt from a drug medical journal (Micromedex)about cimetidine & Hydrocodone.
1. Severity: not specified
2. Onset: not specified
3. Documentation: poor
4. Literature Reports:
a. There is some evidence that enhanced respiratory and CNS depression may occur in the presence of combined therapy with cimetidine and narcotic analgesics (Fine & Churchill, 1981; Lam & Parkin, 1981; Guay et al, 1984). However, more studies are required to fully evaluate this interaction.
I also found this: tramadol (ultram) will intereact, probably favorably in this case, to potentiate the hydrocodone.
1. Summary: Caution should be used when tramadol, an opioid-type analgesic, is coadministered with other central nervous system (CNS) depressants, such as hydrocodone (Prod Info Ultram(R), 1998). It is important to follow closely patients receiving this combination of medications.
2. Adverse Effect: CNS depression (sedation, lethargy, speech difficulties)
3. Clinical Management: Use caution if tramadol is to be used concomitantly in patients receiving hydrocodone therapy. Monitor patients for signs of CNS depression (sedation, lethargy, speech
difficulties) and adjust doses accordingly. The manufacturer recommends that reduced dosages of tramadol be used when it is coadministered with other CNS depressants.
4. Severity: moderate
5. Onset: rapid
6. Documentation: poor
