Anyone else unable to tolerate boost or ensure?
I was getting sick/bloated off of the ensure so I switched to boost. I was doing okay with the boost, except I would get nauseous anytime I drank one.
Well today I knew I was going to be doing some work outside so I drank 2 boosts (this was several hours ago), knowing that I would need the extra energy. BIG MISTAKE. I just spent the last hour throwing up- my stomach does not know how to throw up so it was like burping/spitting up boost. I even had it come up through my nose. Disgusting.
This is despite taking Ondansetron.
I'm still bloated huge and now worried about getting dehydrated. I'm thirsty but I'm afraid if I drink I'll feel even worse.
I swear I'm never drinking that stuff again. I just started a new course of antibiotics a few days ago for bacterial overgrowth. I think the boost just undid whatever good those antibiotics did for me.
The funny thing is I ate pizza yesterday and was fine- even slept through the night last night. The day before that I had mac n cheese, and was fine. I don't get it. Why can I eat pizza and be okay but boost makes me super sick? All I can think is that it causes major bacterial overgrowth. Either that or I'm intolerant to something they put in it. I get nauseous immediately after drinking it, yet I can eat pizza or shrimp with no nausea at all.
It doesn't make sense. Maybe the product had gone bad?
