Avoid NSAIDS: Dangerous in this scenario: try using OTC Prilosec and Pepto-Bismol. You can try using Dramamine ll which contains meclizine-12.5 mg- You will have to take 2 tablets initially for nausea and vomiting. If vomiting is severe, go to UC clinic or ER. Force fluids ( except citrus ) x 8-10 glasses of electrolyte rich fluids daily and call your PCP for Rx medicine for nausea and vomiting. Stop NSAIDS.
