Nausea is the unpleasant feeling of vomit. There are many causes of nausea. Various medicines which work in slightly different ways to one another are available to treat nausea. Medicines for nausea are usually only needed for a few days. Most people are able to take these medicines.
Medicines for nausea are called antiemetics. They can help relieve nausea and vomiting. Several OTC medicines are used as antiemetics. Some medicines when taken in normal doses, may cause nausea for example strong painkillers such as codeine and morphine, antibiotics as well as medicines used to treat cancer. In addition some medicines can cause nausea if you take too much of them for example digoxin or medicines that treat epilepsy.
Nausea can occur in some people after their surgery. This may be caused by the surgery itself or by the anesthetic. If dehydration is present due to loss of fluids from severe vomiting, rehydration with oral electrolyte solutions is preferred. If this is not effective or possible, intravenous rehydration may be required. NIH Medline recommends drinking clear fluids, sitting quietly and eating bland foods.
