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. Antiemetics are also 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 strictly necessary.[1] Contents 1 Types of antiemetics 2 References 3 See also Types of anti...

started pill during period
I started taking 'the pill' during my period, but my period ended before the end of the placebo tablets. Do I keep taking them or wait for the next period?! ## Hello, Chilsy! How are you? You're actually not supposed to start with the placebo tablets. You should have started by taking the first active tablet on the first day of your period. Doing that means you will be immediately protected from pregnancy, since they will prevent ovulation from occurring. However, you can start them at any point in your cycle, but you'll need to take 7 active tablets continuously, before you'll be protected against pregnancy. That means no unprotected intercourse, until the 8th day. You may also experience side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, bloating and ...

suggest me for treat ment
I have fever with chill and motions doctors suggested me dolo 650, narflaxin 400mg fever reduced but motions r same can any one suggest me witch drug to be taken ## Hello, Manju! How are you feeling? The antibiotic can actually cause diarrhea/loose motions, as a side effect, so that might be what's causing them, now. You'll really need to wait and see if it stops, once you finish the medication. It may also cause nausea, dizziness and non-allergic skin rash. Has it eased up, any?

Use of Bonine and the Exelon Patch
I want to go on a trip that will include flying. I have suffered with motion sickness all my life but do well with Bonine. What will happen if I take Bonine while on the patch? ## Hello, Mag! How are you? I didn't find any interactions or problems listed between these two medications, but it's always best to double check such information to be certain. The Bonine may cause you to experience more side effects than usual, so you may feel more dizzy and drowsy than you usually do on the Exelon alone. Is there anything else I can help with?

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...

Birth defects from bendectine
During pregnancy 40 yrs ago I was prescribed Bendectin. Caused urinary groos defects in my child. He has many physical limitations & medical issues as well as psychiatric illnesses. What other birth defects beside kidney defects has Bendectine known to have caused? ## My son was born in 1973. I was told Benedictine. He was born with gross kidney malformations , pyeloric Stenosis and as a young adult developed psychiatric illnesses. No one in my family had these health issues and I strongly suspect this medication. I would have endured the intense nausea if he could have lived a normal life. I wish I had ignored the Doctor's assurance that it was safe. ## Dear Patsy, I'm very sorry to hear about the challenges your child was facing after being exposed to Bendectine. I noticed...
