Nausea & Vomiting Overview

An antiemetic is a drug that is effective against vomiting and nausea.

dipipanone and cyclizine tablets
Post a Reply
Can anyone explain why, after the brand Diconal was discontinued, the price of the remaining generic (by Sovereign, although the tablets are exactly the same and still manufactured by Amdipharm!) is almost ten times the cost of the opriginal brand? Surely brand is always the more expensive option no matter what the drug concerned might be?

what is scopinal for
2 Replies RSS
Scopinal is the best medicine which i had used during my teens. No other medicine would help my severe cramps during menstrual cycle. I used to throw up first two days of my cycle n feel awful not been able to eat or drink something. My father who is a PhD in pharmacy had advised me to use it and it helped wonders. I never had any allergic reaction to it as I used it for 7-8 years. Now I am mother of two n would suggest it to girls as Scopinal helped me always. Cheers. ## Thank you for your helpful post! Scopinal is used to prevent nausea and vomiting, so it will actually only help with that and not the cramping or pain, but it could be beneficial. Are there any comments or questions? ## What the indecationg of scopinal?

is zofran a narcotic
3 Replies RSS
I have a sister who was given Zofran through an iv during labor. and they said that their baby now has narcotics in her system. Is Zofran considered a narcotic? ## concerned no Zofran is not a narcotic , its for nausea. they may have given her something for pain in her iv, but they wont give her anything that would harm the baby, ## I was just wondering it would not happen to have any in epidural would it? I know that epidurals are the most commonly used when in labor to decrease or stop the pain. that wouldn't be it would it? ## concerned once they start the epidural there should be no need for pain meds, unless they gave it to her before the epidural was started, which its still ok .they wont give anything to hurt the baby. lots of stuff going on shes having a baby! ask your nurse...

There were also many differences back then for what were considered pharmaceutical products. Does anyone have information on this? ## my mother use to give to to us in the early 60's. ## I used it in the 1980s and it worked well. I don't tolerate the chemical ones. I remember REM had ipecac, lobelia, squills and other things...I just remember those because ipecac was used as an emetic and when I looked up lobelia and squills they were listed in an herbal book ...

what is amox tr k clv used to treat
1 Reply RSS
can I use this form bacterial vaginosis ## Hello, Miss me! How are you? Yes, it can be used to treat BV, but you should only do so, if your doctor has confirmed that you have BV and prescribed it for you. Depending on the severity and type of infection, sometimes a different antibiotic may work better. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with?
