About anti-nausea medications

Anti-nausea medications, also known as antiemetics, can treat symptoms like morning sickness, nausea, and vomiting. These symptoms can be the result of various health conditions and medications, including pregnancy, chemotherapy, opioid medications, and certain underlying health conditions and therapies. It is a reflex action of the body towards certain toxic substances in the gut. However, antiemetics can help reverse or suppress these symptoms effectively.

What conditions does antinausea treat?

Antinausea can help treat the feelings of vomiting and nausea caused by an infection, motion sickness, food poisoning, gastroenteritis, upper abdominal irritations, and hormonal changes during pregnancy, including its extreme condition called hyperemesis gravidarum. In any case, and especially during pregnancy, do not take antiemetics during pregnancy without consultation from a doctor.

Types of antiemetics

Antiemetic drugs come in different formulations, from oral solutions to sublingual tablets, suppositories, transdermal patches, and intravenous injections. Depending on the receptor they act, antinausea medications are divided into several classes, including the following:

Dopamine antagonists

They are used for postoperative nausea and motion sickness, for example:

  • Metoclopramide (Reglan)
  • Domperidone (Motilium)
  • Chlorpromazine

5-HT3 receptor antagonists

These medications work on the central and peripheral serotonin receptors in the vomiting center and the vagus nerve, respectively. They are prescribed for acute gastroenteritis, chemotherapy-induced nausea, and postoperative nausea, for example:

  • Ondansetron (Zofran)
  • Granisetron
  • Palonosetron (2nd generation)

H1 antihistamines

This class of antiemetics is used to treat vertigo-related nausea or motion sickness due to vestibular disturbances, for example:

  • Cyclizine
  • Promethazine
  • Diphenhydramine
  • Anticholinergics like scopolamine

Neurokinin 1 (NK-1) receptor antagonists

It is a relatively new antiemetic class used to treat radiotherapy and chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting post-surgery. However, it is not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Examples include:

  • Aprepitant (Emend)
  • Rolapitant (Varubi)


Glucocorticoids are also used against postoperative nausea and vomiting related to chemotherapy emesis. It works fine, but some side effects include insomnia, energy, and mood swings.

Consult a doctor to choose the most appropriate antinausea medicine for your condition with the least side effects and the highest efficacy.

How does antinausea work?

Antinausea medicine works by blocking the receptors involved in vomiting-related neural pathways. These receptors respond to certain neurotransmitters, such as dopamine, serotonin, and histamine, inducing vomit or nausea. Upon receiving the threat signal, the gastrointestinal tract sends the information to the peripheral receptors and the vomiting center, stimulating nausea and vomiting by triggering abdominal muscles and the diaphragm.
