Try ginger: Nausea can be triggered by the brain or my GI irritants. Ginger is an intestinal spasmolytic & helps eliminate gas from the intestines. Ginger also impacts the feedback loop between nausea center in the brain and the stomach. It is very beneficial for nausea and motion sickness.

Is upset stomach usually associated with amoxicillin? I've taken two 500 mg pills with little to no food. Can you take it with or without food?

Is upset stomach usually associated with amoxicillin? I've taken two 500 mg pills with little to no food. Can you take it with or without food?

Usually no problem: Amoxicillin rarely upsets the stomach, but if you think it's happening to you, take it with some food. It is equally well absorbed and equally effective taken with or without food.

How much mag glycinate should I take alongside two lots of 600mg calcium a day? I seem to only tolerate 100mg a day at the moment (upset stomach)

How much mag glycinate should I take alongside two lots of 600mg calcium a day? I seem to only tolerate 100mg a day at the moment (upset stomach)

May need a change: Calcium is often best taken in a 2:1 ratio with magnesium. Your dosage right now of magnesium is less than that, but you are getting an upset stomach from it. Consider using another form of magnesium, such as magnesium oxide. Sometimes you can also find calcium and magnesium already mixed in a 2:1 ratio in a single tablet. See your doctor if the symptoms persist.

Upset stomach, took 4 mg zofran, (ondansetron) how much can I take? Deathly afraid of throwing up

8 mg: Normally 4 mg works pretty good. I would not suggest you take more than 8 mg every eight hours without consulting your physician. Higher doses are usually required for someone with chemotherapy.
