Obviously, not mushroom lollipops, but that was my first thought (put me in mind of Enoki shrooms) when I picked up my scrip for Phenergan (Promethazine), for nausea. It’s a gel, which is rubbed into the underside of my wrists.

    Thank you, Marcus!

    Don, no acupressure, just a quick delivery system, and one which avoids swallowing pills, which is often difficult when you’re very nauseous.

    Gotta love that delivery system, that’s a good way to do it. They look pretty but menacing at the same time, somehow. Well, here is hoping it works!

    Kestrel, yes, it’s a good system, had an opportunity to use it yesterday. You can regulate the amount of gel used yourself; if it’s bad, use the whole thing, if not, just a bit. It worked well, and I was impressed with how fast it worked, too.

    I think the menacing vibe is the mushroom aspect; something like Day of the Triffids is lurking back there.

    Great delivery system, good that you control the dose and that it works so quickly, makes it easy to take more if you need to. Plus it’s such a wonderful colour.

    Brilliant title and I do love the colours and textures in the background.

    Glad to hear they work as intended too, getting nausea relief without having to swallow pills sounds like a good idea.

    I’m glad you finally found something that works. There’s not much worse than constant nausea.

    Thank you all!

    I don’t have much nausea now, just a mild queasiness now and then, and this stuff works very well.
