Antiemetics (medicines for nausea)
Antihistamines commonly used for allergies are pretty good nausea medications , and some are sold exclusively for this purpose. There are also two other classes of nausea medications available. Antiemetics, the official term for nausea medications, are not ideal.
Food poisoning causes vomiting for a reason. This is the body's way of cleaning the stomach of disease-causing bacteria. For at least the first 24 hours, vomiting from food poisoning should occur. Your body knows when it really needs to get rid of the nasty stuff from your gut, and when that happens, antiemetics won't help much.
If vomiting does not stop after 24 hours, victims of food poisoning may need to see a doctor. Too much uncontrolled vomiting can lead to dehydration .
Like dietary supplements, medications are not always safe during pregnancy. As I said earlier, it is very difficult to test medications on a pregnant woman because failure can be absolutely devastating.
