Anti Nausea Medicine
Use powerful anti nausea medicines to prevent uncomfortable feelings of nausea. Anti nausea medicines are available in several forms; there are motion sickness pills, nausea tablets, and motion sickness bands.
What Does Anti Nausea Medicine Do?
Anti nausea medicines offer nausea relief in two different ways: They either cause the stomach to transfer food to the bowel at a faster rate, or they prevent the receptors in the gut from sending a message of nausea to the brain.
Anti nausea medicines, such as nausea pills, are most commonly used for relieving an upset stomach as well as nausea due to chemotherapy, pregnancy-related nausea, and motion sickness.
How Do Motion Sickness Bands Work?
A motion sickness bracelet is a wristband that relieves nausea. There is a plastic stud-shaped piece on the inner side of the bracelet which stimulates the P6 acupressure points, and, by doing so, relieves nausea.
Motion sickness bands can be used for nausea relief from many conditions, including motion sickness, morning sickness, seasickness, and other conditions.
Quality motion sickness bracelets, such as the popular Sea Bands or the PSI Health Solutions Acupressure Wrist Band, look stylish, can be adjusted, and are reusable and latex-free.
Lactose intolerance pills such as the popular Lactaid pills are used by individuals who are lactose intolerant (they have a hard time digesting dairy products). Individuals with lactose intolerance suffer from diarrhea, abdominal bloating, gassiness, and stomach aches after eating dairy products. Lactose intolerance affects over 70% of people, including children and adults. Since milk is a source of many different vitamins, taking Lactose intolerance pills allows those that are lactose intolerant to still enjoy and benefit from milk-based foods. Lactose intolerance pills are sometimes called by the generic term Lactaid pills, since Lactaid is the most popular and well-known brand of lactose intolerance pills.
How Do Lactaid Pills Work?
Lactase is an enzyme that breaks down lactose; a sugar which is found in all dairy products. Being lactose intolerant means that the person’s body doesn’t create enough of the lactase enzyme. If there isn’t enough lactase, the dairy product isn’t being digested properly. Lactose intolerance pills contain lactase and when taken, help the body to digest milk products. By supplying these enzymes from an external source, lactase pills help prevent cramps, diarrhea, and similar symptoms caused by lactose that isn’t properly digested.
How to Prevent Lactose Intolerance Symptoms
Although some individuals have a genetic disposition toward lactose intolerance, there are steps to take which can prevent one from suffering its symptoms. Here’s what to do to lessen the effects of lactose intolerance on your body.
- Drink milk only when eating a meal. When milk is not the only thing your body has to digest, there may be less symptoms.
- Eat dairy in small servings. A smaller serving will cause less of a reaction.
- Try to eat mainly lactose-free or lactose-reduced products, such as Toffuti cream cheese, non-dairy ice cream, and similar foods.
- Take Lactaid pills every time you eat dairy products. Many people find that their symptoms will stop appearing after they’ve begun to only eat dairy products in conjunction with swallowing a Lactaid pill.
Lactose pills are extremely beneficial for anyone who is lactose intolerant; they allow for the person to eat dairy products without having stomach trouble later.
Antacid medicines neutralize (i.e. lessen) the amount of acid in the stomach. This relieves the symptoms of GERD, acid reflux, indigestion, and similar digestive issues which are often triggered by excess stomach acids. Popular antacid brands and medicines include Tums (a pregnancy favorite!), Nexium OTC tablets, famotidine 20mg or even 10mg as is found in Pepcid Complete.

Stimulant/Fast Acting Laxatives
Laxative pills and liquid laxatives both prevent or reduce constipation by causing an increase in bowel movements. There are several types of laxatives; the most common type is stimulant laxatives. These are the most fast acting laxatives. Stimulant laxatives increase the amount of movement in the digestive tract, and thereby cause the stool to loosen up and move more quickly. Stimulant laxatives are used by many people, since they are the best fast acting laxatives available. They are also the only Laxative pills recommended by the Mayo Clinic for long-term use.
Laxative powder, such as Miralax powder, is also popular, since it doesn’t require swallowing a pill. However, this type of laxative is osmotic, drawing water from the body and therefore unsafe for long term use as it may cause dehydration.
Laxatives for Weight Loss: Taking Laxatives to Lose Weight
Osmotic laxative pills can cause a temporary weight loss, but nothing more than that, since taking laxatives doesn’t help you lose any fat; it only causes you to lose water. That’s why taking too many laxative pills can trigger dehydration.
Constipation vs. Diarrhea
Diarrhea is the polar opposite of constipation: Constipation is when the stool is very solid or lumpy, and is hard to excrete, while diarrhea is when the stool is very loose and overly liquidy, and comes out often and easily.
The best diarrhea medication is loperamide hydrochloride. Loperamide hydrochloride reduces the rate of movement in the intestines. This reduces the amount of bowel movements and results in more solid stool formation.
Another possible solution for Diarrhea is to take probiotic pills. Acidophilus probiotics are believed to reduce many digestive issues, for example, bloating, constipation, and diarrhea, by restoring the balance of bacteria in your intestines.
