EPO on empty tummy?? or contraction?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Do you take your EPO on an empty stomach?? I only started taking them yesterday, first one was yesterday morning I took 1 and my prenatal at the same time (prenatal is 100% food derived, so it doesn't bother my stomach at all) then I had a bowl of cereal about 5-10 minutes later. I felt kinds "weird" light headed-ish and just kinda off, laid down for a while and felt better, didn't think much of it. I took 2 more EPO that day, one with lunch, one after dinner with no ill effect.

This morning I took an EPO and my prenatal, then made my way to the kitchen for breakfast, I started to feel REALLY hungry, then my stomach started to ache, and pretty soon my whole uterus was tight & burning and really painful!! I tried to shove some food into my mouth really quickly, tried laying down, then finally went into the bathroom b/c I thought I was going to throw up, but nothing came out. After heaving for a few minutes though, I felt much better. Came back out, ate breakfast and am fine now.

That was at least a half hour ago, and no other pains in my stomach, so do you think it was b/c of the EPO or a contraction or what????

I can only speak from my experience. But I only have something to drink with mine many times. I have never had any of the mentioned problems.

It's never made me feel like that precisely... but if I have a very empty stomach it will make me a little queasy, but I think on my part it might be part mind related just cause any oil pills seem to make my tummy feel weird.

It seems like your tummy may want food to help absorb the oil some as lunch and dinner don't seem to bother you?
