Nausea treatment FAQs

  • What are the symptoms of nausea?

    Nausea is a feeling of uneasiness in your stomach. Although nausea often coincides with the urge to vomit, it doesn't always lead to vomiting. If you're feeling nauseous, you might also experience the following symptoms:

    • Abdominal pain or tenderness

    • Diarrhea or constipation

    • Headache

    • Dizziness

    • Heartburn

    • Gas

    • Indigestion

  • What causes nausea?

    Several factors can contribute to nausea, including:

    • Heartburn or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)

    • A bacterial infection or virus

    • Motion sickness or seasickness

    • Food sensitivities or allergies

    • High levels of stress and anxiety

    • Food poisoning

    • Migraine headaches

    • Hormonal changes (for example, morning sickness due to pregnancy)

    In addition, some medical conditions can cause symptoms of nausea. You might experience a general feeling of stomach uneasiness if you have:

    • Gallbladder or kidney stones

    • An intestinal obstruction

    • A stomach ulcer

    • Meningitis

    • Pancreatitis

    • Mental health conditions, such as depression or an anxiety disorder

  • When should you see a doctor for nausea?

    If your nausea symptoms persist for more than 24 hours after taking over-the-counter medicine, talk to your healthcare professional. In most cases, nausea goes away without treatment and isn't a medical emergency. However, if your symptoms don't go away, medical care may be necessary.

    Seek immediate medical help if your nausea coincides with:

    • Dehydration

    • A stiff neck

    • Confusion

    • Blood in your vomit or stool

    • Difficulty waking up

    • Severe pain in your lower right abdomen

    Several treatments are available for nausea. Depending on the cause of your nausea, your healthcare provider may recommend medications such as:

    • Over-the-counter antacids

    • Anti-anxiety medication

    • Olanzapine

    • Antiemetic drugs

    If you have persistent or recurring nausea, you can book an appointment with one of our doctors to get nausea treatment online. Once your doctor diagnoses your nausea, they can provide treatments for any underlying conditions, such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). They can also prescribe medications to improve your symptoms, such as:

    In addition to anti-nausea medicine, many patients benefit from simple dietary changes. For example, you might:

    • Eat smaller meals to improve your digestive health.

    • Try eating a bland diet with easy-to-digest foods, such as rice and banana.

    • Avoid food sensitivities and allergies, such as gluten, spicy foods, or high-fat foods.

    • Eliminate common nausea triggers, such as alcohol and caffeinated beverages, from your diet.

Learn about nausea & vomiting

Nausea and vomiting are common symptoms of numerous health conditions. In many cases, people experience nausea and vomiting due to viral gastroenteritis—also known as the stomach flu—or morning sickness related to early pregnancy.

Nausea and vomiting can affect both adults and children. Fortunately, there are several treatments to relieve nausea and stomach discomfort.

Nausea causes

  • Several factors can contribute to nausea and vomiting. While some people are sensitive to specific foods, others may experience nausea due to health conditions. Some common causes of nausea and vomiting include:

    • Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD): GERD causes the stomach's contents to flow back into the esophagus. When the stomach contents move back up the gastrointestinal tract, you may experience a burning sensation (heartburn), which can coincide with nausea and vomiting.

    • Bacterial or viral infections: Bothviral and bacterial infections can cause stomach pain and discomfort. For example, food-borne bacteria can cause food poisoning, while viruses can cause viral gastroenteritis (intestinal flu).

    • Certain medications: Nausea is a common side effect of many medications. If you start a new treatment, such as chemotherapy, you might notice new symptoms of nausea.

    • Motion sickness: Motion sickness happens when your brain can't process the information from your eyes, ears, and body. When your brain's signals don't match up with your senses, you might experience nausea and vomiting.

    • Food sensitivities: Eating certain foods, such as spicy foods, can cause stomach discomfort. Food allergies and sensitivities can also contribute to nausea symptoms.

    • Pain: Pain can exacerbate nausea symptoms. If you have pancreatitis, gallbladder stones, kidney stones, or migraine headaches, you might experience severe nausea.

    • Stomach ulcers: Ulcers (sores in the stomach or intestinal lining) can cause nausea. When you eat, ulcers trigger an inflammatory response. You might feel especially nauseous in the morning or after going a few hours without food.

Nausea symptoms

  • Nausea is characterized by stomach uneasiness and discomfort. Nausea often coincides with the urge to vomit but doesn't always lead to vomiting. If you're feeling nauseous, you might also experience:

    • Headache

    • Dizziness

    • Abdominal pain or tenderness

    • Low fever

    • Chest pain

    • Heartburn

    • Diarrhea or constipation

    • Gas

    • Vomiting

    Vomiting is a formed voluntary or involuntary emptying of the stomach contents through the mouth ("throwing up"). Triggers that cause vomiting can come from several parts of the body, including:

    • The stomach and intestines (infection, food irritation, or injury)

    • The inner ear (dizziness and motion sickness)

    • The brain (head trauma, tumors, migraines, or infection)

    If you have chronic nausea, you may experience other uncomfortable symptoms, including:

    • Constantly feeling like you're sick or about to vomit

    • Lack of appetite

    • Uncontrollable sweating

    • Repeated stomach muscle contractions that you cannot control (retching)

    • Stomachache or upset stomach

    • An uneasy feeling in the chest, upper abdomen, or back of the throat

    • Difficulty keeping food down

How to treat nausea

Treatment for nausea depends on the specific cause of your nausea. In most cases, simple home remedies can help relieve nausea. If you're feeling nauseous, you might:

  • Drink beverages to settle your stomach, such as ginger ale.

  • Avoid caffeinated beverages, including soda and coffee.

  • Eat smaller meals, which helps your stomach digest foods gradually.

  • Eat a bland diet with easy-to-digest foods.

  • Take over-the-counter medicine to ease your nausea symptoms.

If you have chronic nausea, your doctor can create a personalized treatment plan for relieving nausea. Your treatment plan may include:

  • Medications, such as anti-nausea medicine

  • Working with a nutritionist

  • Treating underlying conditions, such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)

Nausea medications

If your nausea symptoms persist for a few days, talk to a healthcare professional to determine the cause of your nausea. Your doctor may recommend a prescription or over-the-counter medicine to treat your nausea, such as:

  • Olanzapine

    Olanzapine is a safe and effective medicine for nausea and vomiting. It's often prescribed for patients getting high doses of chemotherapy

    Antiemetic drugs

    Antiemetics are typically prescribed to treat motion sickness and side effects from oral analgesics, general anesthetics, and chemotherapy.

    Anti-anxiety medication

    Anti-anxiety medication, such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), can help relieve anxiety and its physical symptoms.

    Over-the-counter antacids

    Antacid medication, such as Tums and Alka-Seltzer, help neutralize stomach acid to reduce heartburn, upset stomach, and indigestion. Some antacids also contain simethicone, which helps your body get rid of gas.


    Unlike antacids (which help with heartburn), Emetrol is intended specifically for nausea. Emetrol relieves nausea by soothing the upset stomach and reducing stomach muscle contractions, which can help prevent vomiting.

How to avoid nausea

It's not always possible to avoid nausea. However, identifying your triggers and taking steps to minimize your exposure can help prevent nausea. Depending on your nausea triggers, you might avoid:

  • Eating foods that upset your stomach, such as spicy or high-fat foods

  • Strobe lights, which can trigger migraine headaches

  • Strong fragrances, such as perfume

  • Avoiding amusement park rides, which can cause motion sickness

When to see a doctor for nausea

If nausea affects your quality of life, talk to your doctor to determine the cause and explore your treatment options. You should also book an appointment with your doctor if your nausea symptoms don't subside within 24 hours of taking over-the-counter interventions.

Seek immediate medical attention if your nausea coincides with:

  • Heart attack symptoms (chest pain, jaw pain, sweating, or pain in your left arm)

  • Severe abdominal pain

  • Severe headache

  • Difficulty breathing

  • Confusion

  • Neck stiffness

  • Dehydration

  • Blood in your vomit or stool

  • Fever

If you experience severe pain in your lower right abdomen, you may have appendicitis, which is a serious medical problem. The symptoms of appendicitis often come on suddenly and gradually grow worse.

Always seek medical help if you're concerned you may be experiencing a medical emergency.
