I don't know what it is -- maybe the Cimzia -- but I get a low-level feeling of nausea occasionally. Anybody found any (cheap) otc/prescription drugs that helped? I searched and found a bunch:
Cimzia, Asacol

gravol usually works very well for me... the herbal ginger kind is awesome, but so is the knock you out dimenhydrinate kind!

Zofran works the best, in my opinion, but it's pricey. Phenergan works all right, but it causes drowsiness, so it's essentially useless if you need to avoid nausea in order to function. Same with Reglan. They both come in generic and are under $20 at Walmart. Nausene is an OTC product that works decently for mild-moderate nausea. I think it's about $4 or $5 at Walmart. Chewables, but they taste decent.

I agree with onedaymore. Try sipping (very slowly) peppermint tea ... not just mint, must be peppermint. Ginger chews or ginger tea or freshly grated ginger in food can help too.

Ditto on the freshly grated ginger tea here! Just make sure you don't use more ginger than the tip of your pinkie finger...has kinda a spicy kick to it for those that are used to bland boring foods. Boy does it work for me when nothing else will!

Hi Gden
Just a thought, I took asacol for a long time, eventually I found it to be causing me mild nausea.  Maybe you should look into that. It is a side effect after long term use.

I had compazine for years, but I became allergic. Its closely related to reglan so I can't take that either. I have Tigan in which is relatively cheap and works OK, but Zofran really works the best. But its expensive and insurance will only let you have so many at a time. For me, I am allowed 9 pills per week, but I an Rx'ed 3 pills a day. So I try to fill my script every week so I have a stock pile for those bad times, and then I have the Tigan for back up.
