Hi. I’ve replied to Melanie66 on her original posting. Have to say I had no nausea whatsoever and I don’t think it is usual. Any sense of feeling sick that I recall was just down to general anxiety. On reflection I suspect that the anxiety hype around Hydroxy is probably due to historical (and no longer valid) reasons. The benefits undoubtably are potentially enormous - and lifesaving. And the reality is the overwhelming majority of patients tolerate the drug exceedingly well.
