Many illnesses can sometimes make you feel sick (nausea) or vomit (be sick). Treatment will be based on the most likely cause of your nausea. If it is caused by something like pain, or a chemical imbalance, it’s important that this is treated. Your doctors may prescribe an anti-sickness (anti-emetic) drug. These often work better when they’re taken regularly so that the sickness doesn’t have a chance to come back. They’re usually given as tablets, but if you can’t keep tablets down there are other ways to have them.
Wellbeing therapies such as relaxation and acupuncture can also be used to help reduce nausea and vomiting.
