Nausea, retching or dry heaving, and vomiting in early pregnancy are very common and can be very distressing for women. Many treatments are available to women with 'morning sickness', including drugs and complementary and alternative therapies. Because of concerns that taking medications may adversely affect the development of the fetus, this review aimed to examine if these treatments have been found to be effective and safe.

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

Nausea (feeling sick) and vomiting (being sick) is a common symptom in people in emergency departments, and can result from a number of different causes. 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.

Treatment of epilepsy in people with neurocysticercosis | Cochrane

Neurocysticercosis is a common infection of the brain caused by the larvae of the pork tapeworm, migrating to the brain. Seizure is the most common symptom, while some people may present with headache, vomiting or brain swelling. This review investigates the usefulness of antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) in preventing seizures in people who did not have seizures but presented with headache or brain oedema. We also examined the usefulness of the AEDS in people with neurocysticercosis with epilepsy in terms of choice of drug, dosage, duration of treatment, cost, side effects and the quality of life.

Critical limb ischaemia in peripheral vascular disease: intravenous iloprost | key-points-from-the-evidence | Advice | NICE

A Cochrane review of low quality studies of prostanoids in people with critical limb ischaemia unsuitable for surgery found that compared with placebo, intravenous iloprost statistically significantly reduced major amputations, improved rest-pain relief, and improved ulcer healing. The benefit of intravenous iloprost on total amputations (major plus minor) was not statistically significant. In a randomised controlled trial (RCT) in people undergoing femorodistal bypass surgery for critical limb ischaemia, perioperative intravenous and intra-graft iloprost did not improve graft patency or clinical status, or reduce amputations at 1‑year follow-up compared with placebo. Adverse events were more common with intravenous iloprost than with placebo and included pain at the infusion site, headache, flushing, nausea and vomiting, and hypotension.

Haloperidol for the treatment of nausea and vomiting in palliative care patients | Cochrane

Haloperidol is often used to help control nausea (feeling sick) or vomiting (being sick), both of which are common problems for patients with serious life-threatening illnesses. Haloperidol can be given by mouth or by injection. There has been some research looking at how this drug works in nausea and vomiting caused by surgery and when trying to prevent nausea and vomiting caused by anti-cancer treatments.
