User Profile
Hello, I am 16 years old. I am a female. I was on fluoxetine hydrochloride (prozac)off it now. For a year now, every time I eat I vomit shortly after (two t five minuts) this can . Every meal no matter what i eat. most fluids come back up too. even when i haven't ate for a while i ca still be sick. i have had barium swallow - normal, helicobacter test - normal, ultrasound - non cancerous cyst on liver, had blood tests done, times coming back low potassium never had my thyroid checked. really cold and lost a bit of weight not alot. every meal i eat i vomit - this is involuntary, i dont do anything to self inflict this. i am currently on the laxtive lactulose, for constipation, my left kidney sometimes gets so painful i think its too much water retention cause if i am sick and lots of fluid comes up it goes away, i get a sharp pain under my rib cage (left).

Hello and welcome to e health forum.

Based on the history and the description you may be mostly having gastric reflux associated vomiting and nausea.

Your symptoms can be helped with medications like proton pump inhibitors like omeprazole, and antiemetics like dramamine.

You can also consult with a gastroenterologist who can prescribe you prokinetic medications, which will improve the Gastrointestinal motility and hence reduce your symptoms.

I hope this helps.
