4.0 out of 5 stars For Those Who Don't Enjoy Vomiting, December 22, 2011
This review is from: Emetrol For Nausea & Upset Stomach Cherry (Health and Beauty)
If you're shopping for this product chances are high that you don't enjoy vomiting and need a prompt solution to keep your head out of the toilet bowl. I recently encountered exactly this situation due to a rather debilitating and thoroughly unpleasant fast-moving virus making the rounds. Not really being a drinker, I don't have a lot of experience with regurgitation and was certainly caught off guard by the sudden onset and viciousness of the attack on my digestive tract. Pandemonium reigned: I couldn't even keep water down, and the mere thought of food was a terrible idea for reasons I'd rather not get into here.

Anyway... My doctor told me to stay hydrated (not as easy as it seemed) and that it would quickly pass. (Was that a pun at my expense? I still don't know, but didn't have the predisposition to go into the finer points of digestive humor right then.) I asked a pharmacist what she recommended, and she said the best over the counter medicine for nausea and vomiting was Emetrol. She instructed to take the medicine by drinking the syrup and then not drinking anything else immediately afterwards, repeating per the directions on the box. While Emetrol didn't entirely eliminate my nausea, it did dramatically cut down on the episodes of projectile vomiting I had been dealing with. It does have a very sweet cherry flavor that's not particularly palatable, but tastes better than bile coming the other way.

Ask your doctor or pharmacist before using any medicine, of course, and be advised that this contains fructose, so if you have fructose intolerance obviously don't use this. Diabetics also know that it's made from a sugar base, so definitely don't use it without talking to your doctor first.

Emetrol worked well for me. I know this review is lighthearted, but rest assured I am quite serious that the product worked as advertised for me, and if you need quick relief from severe nausea, it's a good place to start. It may not make you feel great, but for me it took away the worst of the nausea symptoms associated with a nasty gastrointestinal virus.
