Celexa: Celexa can cause nausea as a side effect, and anxiety can also. If you've been on calexa for 4 months and the nausea has not dissipated, it's unlikely to do so at your current dose.

Throw them ALL away!: Ignore the tantrums that ensue without making eye contact, looking upset, or verbally consoling him.

How can I get rid of a sick hangover in a couple hours?

Tums: Have you tried changing your diet? Has this ever been evaluated by your doctor (to rule out a different problem)? Calcium tablets, such as tums, can provide quick relief to stomach acid. If you have acid reflux disease, a longer acting medicine, such as Famotidine may be of benefit. Make sure this is the only problem you have by checking in with your health care provider. ...Read more
