Just wanted to share two things that really helped me to get through the nausea of taking a new antidepressant medication:

1) Acupressure Points:
Learn the acupressure points which correspond to nausea and consider the over the counter wrist bands which will apply consistent pressure to these points. Look online, at your library, etc. for a guide to the acupressure points which is
easy for you to use.

2) Activia Yogurt:
This is not intended to endorse a certain product, and I don't even like the way it tastes, but I have tried LOTS of yogurt, most of which I enjoy eating. What really helped the nausea however was the Activia product.
