nausea

How does one induce vomiting? I through up earlier in the day but still feel nauseous and hadn't eaten for 24 hours now. I do not wish to stick my finger in my mouth. Thank you.

Try to eat. You need water at least. You get dehydrated when throwing up. Sip 7-up slowly. Or Ginger ale. Nibble on Saltines. That will help the nausea.

Hope you feel better!

SBW uses the same tricks my parents (both physicians) used when I was sick. One extra strength Tylenol. Unrestricted access to 7-up or Sprite. (Ginger ale, Sierrra Mist, etc should be acceptable substitutes.) Likewise with saltines. Lots of sleep.

Ah, it was methotrexate and cisplatinum that did it for me

Seriously, though, ginger is good for cutting through nausea. I find the stronger the ginger flavour the better.

Take some real ginger root, cut it into bits, boil it and drink it. Or just chew on it raw (I do - love the stuff!).

Ginger ale really doesn't have enough ginger to do anything - though the ginger beer by Jones is damn good!

I agree with the try to drink water, electrolytes. You need to stay hydrated. Syrup of Ipicac will induce vomiting. By the way, you can fell nausea, but you cannot feel nauseous. If you were nauseous, you would make people sick. Look up the word in a dictionary. Nauseous is one of the most misused words.

Really? I use the ginger root to make tea for when I've got a sore throat or just sick. Never made me throw up yet.

it's not to make you throw up, it's to settle the stomach!

borrow someone elses fingers, or use a tongue depressor.

if you haven't eaten for as long as you state chucking up probably isn't a good idea- all you will get up is bile and then you'll end up feeling nauseous with a burning throat to boot.

hope you feel better soon.

DON'T do what I tried once.


I was nauseous and just thought if I could make myself vomit I'd feel better. So I took some medicine that was supposed to induce vomiting.


Oooops.....did I tell you it was supposed to INHIBIT vomiting? I took the OPPOSITE of what I intended. Then I was miserable for that much longer. I was doing jumping jacks to try to get it to come up and still with no success.

If you really want to throw up go to a bar and do three cement mixer shots.

Yo KT, I think you were experiencing nausea. If you were nauseous, you would have been making other people sick.
