What is more effective in PREVENTMENT/treatment of nausea and vomiting due to viral gastroenteritis? Metoclopramide or Zofran (ondansetron)?

Nausea~: hello~ Zofran is reserved for severe nausea that accompanies chemotherapy, so I would use something safer and first line like Compazine (prochlorperazine), (prochlorperazine) which would work better than metaclopamide, but metaclopamide can be used in mild cases.You will need to ask your doc for a script for Compazine (prochlorperazine). thanks ...Read more

Is there any over-the-counter anti nausea medication for chronic nausea and vomiting?

Is there any over-the-counter anti nausea medication for chronic nausea and vomiting?

Some : Pepto bismol helps sometimes and if the nausea is due to acid reflux, things like zantac (ranitidine) or Prilosec otc could too. Ginger is said to help deal with nausea as well. Lifestyle changes like limiting alcohol and caffeine could be of benefit but my question is why do you have chronic nausea? I would suggest you visit your family doc or a GI as there could be something that needs treatment. ...Read more

Can I take Zofran (ondansetron) if i'm experiencing gastroenteritis (nausea and vomiting)?

Can I take Zofran (ondansetron) if i'm experiencing gastroenteritis (nausea and vomiting)?

Maybe you see doc 1t: Yes, you can take zofran (ondansetron) if you 100% sure it is gastroenteritis! however, nausea and vomiting could be the symptoms of other conditions (for example, cholecystitis, appendicitis, small bowel obstruction), and in these cases zofran (ondansetron) could be harmful or could mask very dangerous surgical cases. Don't hesitate to go see the real doc. ...Read more

Can taking ginger for nausea reduce or eliminate nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapy?

Can taking ginger for nausea reduce or eliminate nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapy?

There is evidence that when taken with standard anti-nausea medications, ginger may be helpful in further reducing or eliminating nausea and vomiting during and after chemotherapy treatments: Results from two studies of adults who took ginger for nausea showed that various doses of ginger before starting chemotherapy treatments helped to reduce the severity of nausea. In these studies, participants began taking ginger orally three days prior to starting chemotherapy. The ginger was taken in addition to a standard medication prescribed to reduce nausea and vomiting. A small number of participants reported side effects including heartburn, bruising, flushing and rash. In another study, taking ginger root powder was found to be effective in reducing the severity of chemotherapy-induced nausea in children and young adults ages 8 to 21. Ginger in this study was also given along with standard anti-nausea medications. Earlier studies had shown ginger to be of little or no benefit in reducing nausea and vomiting due to chemotherapy. Many prescription drugs have been proved effective at controlling nausea during and after chemotherapy. Ask your doctor if combining ginger and anti-nausea medications might be right for you.

5 days ago, began with diarrhea and lots of gas pain/pressure, low-grade fever, no vomiting. Food poisoning, virus, or bacterial? Thx.

Diarrhea: Certainly all 3 are possibilities. Have you been on any antibiotics in the last 6 weeks? If so having your stool tested for C. difficile would be prudent. Recent travel especially to 3rd world countries? Stool sample can be collected and tested these days for many causes including the 3 you mentioned. Otherwise, increase fluids such as sport drinks and stick with a simple diet until normal ...Read more

Do ipecacuanha tablets (bottle says to treat nausea, vomiting or cough) have the same effect as syrup of ipecac (which induces vomiting)?

Do ipecacuanha tablets (bottle says to treat nausea, vomiting or cough) have the same effect as syrup of ipecac (which induces vomiting)?

Opposite effect!: I am presuming the Ipecacuanha tablets you are talking about are homeopathic (it is probably labelled something like 12x or 30c). This actually prevents nausea and vomiting rather than inducing it. One of the main principles of homeopathy is "like cures like." As Ipecac syrup induces vomiting, a highly dilute form of it prepared homeopathically helps to prevent vomiting. ...Read more
