The dr recommended Benedryl for nausea?

It actually works really well! But boy, does it make me sleepy! I don't have a clue as to how it works or what's in it that makes my stomach ache go away....Anyone know?

  • Benadryl is an anithistamie, the drug in it is Diphenhyrdramine, same stuff that it's motion sickness pills. Its also anti-emitic. Those class of drugs helps to stop nausea and vomitting

  • Thank you Zakysmommy :) Do you know if there is any kind that is NON drowsy? I can only take it at night because I absolutely can not keep my eyes open at all when I take that! lol

  • i think they have a non-drowsy brand, but it may be a store brand vs the name brand.
