Tums or Peppermints?

I can't seem to figure out which would be better to settle my stomach after being sick!

  • depends on what is causing the problem really... ginger ale works too... I would do Tums most likely tho.

  • Well, so far through out this pregnancy I haven't been able to hold much down for longer than a few minutes [if even that] so I dont really know what is causing it..

  • I used both (well, peppermint tea and Tums) for a very awful pregnancy, but both for different reasons.

    When calming nausea and post, um, toilet-hugging episodes I went the mint route. I liked peppermint tea best, hot or cold, but carried peppermints with me. I also used Zofran, but peppermint was soothing, and also helped the post-stomach-emptying breath.

    Tums I ate by the handful every night for heartburn. They did nothing for my nausea.
