Vomiting is a protective reaction of the body. In this way, the stomach is released from all the toxic substances that have accumulated in it. It is not considered a separate disease, but rather a symptom that indicates that the body has some kind of malfunction. If vomiting in your case is just a temporary phenomenon, special tablets will cope with it.

Indications for use

Tablets from vomiting, as a rule, are accepted if it appeared after excessive consumption of food, too much emotional stress or stressful situation, taking certain medications (for example, cytostatics) in case of sea or air sickness, after radiation therapy or surgery. Before using any anti-emetics, you need to pay attention that all drugs in this group have a different mechanism of action. That is, if you need to get rid of vomiting after overeating, you should take one pill, and from air sickness - others.

That is why, before using tablets against vomiting, you need to determine the cause of its appearance. If you can not stop an unpleasant symptom, you should immediately call an ambulance.

Pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics

Consider the pharmacodynamics of tablets from vomiting, using the popular "Cerucal" remedy.
