Nausea & Vomiting Overview

An antiemetic is a drug that is effective against vomiting and nausea. Antiemetics are typically used to treat motion sickness and the side effects of opioid analgesics, general anaesthetics, and chemotherapy directed against cancer. They may be used for severe cases of gastroenteritis, especially if the patient is dehydrated. Antiemetics can also be used for morning sickness, but there is little information about the effect on the fetus, and doctors prefer not to use them unless it is strict...

I took this drug in the 1970's while pregnant. Am looking for the side effects to the babies. Drug has been off the market for many years. Not sure on correct spelling. Used for nausea and vomiting during pregnancy. Thank you for any help you can send me. Sincerely, Dana Jones. ## Dana, The drug Bendictine you are referring to was reported to cause birth defects in some cases. But a similar drug is prescribed today and it's called Diclectin. Funny how some people will say to stay away from something while others say it's perfectly safe. I think it's a matter of speaking to at least several physicians and following your intuition, as far as what feels right for you and who you trust. The drug Diclectin is a combination of Doxylamine (an antihistamine) and Vitamin B6. A go...

Does Dexona and Practin Tabs Increase weight...? Will i have any problems in future....? ## Please I recommend not to use practin and dexona....for weight gain... i used them for 2 mnths for weight gain...i gained 12 kgs in 2 months but after leaving those tablets..i had jaundice..and had anrexia and nausea ...and had no appetite..i lost all 12 kgs in only 15-20 days...but the symptoms continued..i had a doctor checkup ..he told me that it will take 8-12 months to recover.. However u can use only practin.... ## I have to agree, unless your doctor has instructed you to do so, it isn't safe to try to use these medications just to gain weight. Like any drug, they carry the risk of causing other severe side effects, just like Nayan has stated. Practin contains the active ingredient Cypr...

The pill has DRA i think but the other side has been rubbed off ## Hello, Angie! How are you? The DRA marking is used on over the counter Dramamine products, but without anything on the opposite side. It contains the active ingredient Dimenhydrinate and is used to prevent motion sickness and vertigo. Learn more Dramamine details here. I'm not sure which one this is though, since they are all very similar and the color is the only difference. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Pill is Subutex 8mg. Round, Orange, Scored, Capital DRA on opposite side.

Hi, I have been on nur-istarate for the past 3 years and now I want to get pregnant. How long does it take to wear off and get out of my body? I took it from 2010 until 2012. Please, I need ur help. ## Hello, Celiwe! How are you? It usually takes a couple months for things to balance back out and for you to ovulate, again, in order to get pregnant. As listed by the FDA, you may experience some minor withdrawal effects from stopping it, which may include nausea, weight changes, irritability, irregular periods and PMS-like symptoms. How long have you been off of it? ## Hi verwon, i've been off to my shot for about 3 to 4 years now. I'm so scared that I may be infertile, because in 2009 I got a miscarriage and I did clean my womb, and I went to the clinic for my first shot, immedia...

round white tablet, rph over D51 ## Sorry, this is apparently something foreign, not regulated and used in the US so I cannot find an ID on it. I would suggest talking to a local pharmacist who may be able to help. ## It's Domperidone, a medication generally used to get intestines moving in the right direction, and for acid reflux. Occasionally prescribed to increase lactation in breastfeeding moms, as that is one of its side effects. (used in Canada)

Hi I have a sore throat and earache would Expecin® Ampiciline 500mg help?? ## Hello, Esther! How are you? I'm sorry that you're not feeling well. The FDA classifies this medication as an antibiotic, so it will only help, if these symptoms have been caused by a bacterial infection. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Have you consulted your doctor? It would be best to have them check it out, because taking an antibiotic, when you don't have an infection creates the risk of you developing antibiotic resistant bacteria. Is there anything else I can help with?
