FAQ

  • How can I treat nausea?

    In most cases nausea goes away on its own and does not require treatment. The treatment depends on the cause of nausea. If a migraine has caused you to feel nauseous it would be better to treat the migraine rather than treating nausea alone. Antiemetic medications are available to treat nausea alone, however, you may have an underlying problem that is causing nausea so it is important to consult your doctor about this. 

    At home remedies include drinking clear and cold fluids, eating light and bland foods, avoiding greasy food, eating slower and smaller portions, avoiding activity after eating and peppermint or ginger tea can also help settle the stomach.
