Drink small fluids: Due to possible stomach flu you should take water or sport drinks, containing electrolytes, in small amounts to prevent vomitings. Stay away from solid foods, greasy foods until feel better. See doctor if start vomiting and can't keep anything down. Feel better

OTC meds to start: Nausea is a non specific symptom and it can occasionally be associate with serious conditions such as brain cancer. Most commonly however, it is self limiting and has no adverse outcomes. Antacids and other the counter drugs such as zantac, (ranitidine) Pepcid or Omeprazole may be all that you need. If nausea persists, you should see your doctor to make sure it is not serious.

Avoid water: For some reason, water makes it worse. Drink sports drinks, juice, or soda. Avoid foods that are spicy or fried. Avoid citrus (lemons, limes, oranges) and tomatoes. Stick to bland foods like bananas, cereal, rice, and bread. Add a protein such as peanut butter.

You felt better...: ...on drugs, but felt worse off them? Sounds like the meds were part of the solution, not the problem. A frank conversation with your doctor should clarify what options you have as well as the appropriate next course of action to take.
