OTC Treatment for Nausea

Nausea is an uneasiness of the stomach that often comes before vomiting.

Nausea has several different causes including motion sickness, morning sickness, drug reactions, stomach virus and indigestion. Mild nausea that's caused by stomach virus or indigestion is easy to treat with an over-the-counter medicine such as Emetrol and Pepto-Bismol.

Emetrol is a high-sugar-based product that works by relaxing the muscles in the stomach and calming stomach activity. Pepto-Bismol is a bismuth salt that acts by coating the inside of the stomach to relieve the feeling of nausea.

If your nausea and vomiting are unexplained, severe or last longer than 48 hours, talk to your doctor before using over-the-counter anti-nausea products. Pregnant women shouldn't use over-the-counter anti-nausea medicines without their doctor's advice. Diabetics should avoid Emetrol due to the high amount of sugars in this product.
