Hello everyone, I wonder if anyone has any advice, please.
My husband and I are going away on Monday and during our holiday (Iceland) hope to go whalewatching. He gets seasick very easily. I am a little better in that respect, but still don’t like too much up and down on a boat! I am on Gabapentin.
At the pharmacy last night, we bought some Kwells for his use (hyoscine hydrobromide) but the pharmacist said I should speak to my GP for advice before I took any Kwells. They knew which medicines I was on, because we picked up prescriptions for me at the same time.
We go on Monday early. I haven’t got time to contact the GP.
I am inclined to go ahead and take the Kwells, possibly missing the morning dose of Gabapentin. I have taken motion sickness pills years ago when on Gabapentin, although not such a high dose - now on 3 x 300mg a day, with no ill effects.
Gabapentin is also prescribed for epilepsy, I think, and I can imagine that would be bad mix with motion sickness medication and possibly dangerous. Pharmacist did not know for which condition I am on this medication.
Has anyone any experience of this or suggestions, please?
Anyone used anything else when on Gabapentin?
