Medicines in the treatment of emergency department nausea and vomiting | Cochrane

In addition to being distressing, it can lead to other problems such as dehydration (where the body is losing more fluid than it is taking in). Medicines to treat nausea have been useful in other settings, such as after operations, although it is not known what is the best medicine for people in emergency departments.
