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.
