  • Are you pregnant? If so, call your doctor and ask which are safe to take. If not, try Pepto-Bismol (which is NOT safe to take when pregnant).

  • I don't like meds, so I use ginger and drink mineral water. Ginger helps you get rid of headaches too, you can buy it fresh in the produce section and just chop up a few little pieces and swallow with either Perrier water or Pellegrino, it works immediately..don't get the kind with lemon.. citrus is acidic and will make your headache worse.

  • Go to Walmart and buy "Anti-Nausea Liquid"... it's the cheaper form of Emetrol... stuff works awesomely.

  • Whenever i am nauseaus i drink peppermint it settles your stomach and then you will feel better. Make a cup of peppermint tea and some toast and put jelly on it and you should feel better that you have something in your stomach. I just got over what you have and sorry to tell you it lasted 6 days and the last day was the worst. I had to call my Doctor and have him call me some anti-nausea meds in. That is the only thing that helped me and of course sleep.
