Antiemetic

Ondansetron

If you’re experiencing intense migraines in addition to nausea or vomiting, Ondansetron might just be the best solution for you. This medication is regularly used for patients who have just undergone surgery, chemotherapy, or radiation therapy. Patients who experience any symptoms after these surgeries will usually take this pill and feel much better. At Nurx™, our doctors usually prescribe Ondansetron alongside a different migraine medication to help treat symptoms you may get from migraines, like nausea.

Metoclopramide

If you have constant migraines and migraine symptoms that seem tough to get rid of, Metoclopramide could be an excellent solution for you to try. It’s usually used to treat heartburn that gastroesophageal reflux often causes. In addition to treating heartburn, it can also prevent nausea, vomiting, and symptoms from migraines from occurring. Because of this, our doctors at Nurx™ will recommend this medication to our patients.

Zuplenz

Zuplenz belongs to a group of drugs known as antiemetics. Doctors frequently prescribe Zuplenz to patients who are going through chemotherapy, radiation, or another cancer treatment and are experiencing associated nausea and vomiting. It’s also taken by patients who have had a recent surgery that is causing heavy nausea.

However, Zuplenz does more than provide nausea relief, although this is a major benefit. Zuplenz can help treat migraine headaches and keep them from forming to their full strength. Taken at the onset of a migraine, Zuplenz may be able to help you conquer your migraine pain and live a pain-free life. If you have suffered from migraines throughout the years, know that it doesn’t have to be this way forever. With Zuplenz or its generic equivalent, Ondansetron, you no longer have to come second to your migraines. At Nurx™, we don’t carry Zuplenz itself, but we do prescribe Ondansetron.

Zofran

Zofran is a prescribed medication that helps prevent nausea and vomiting caused by cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy and radiation therapy. You can also take it if you suffer from migraines or severe nausea. Your doctor may prescribe you Zofran to treat postoperative nausea or nausea onset by migraines or migraine medication. It comes in the following forms:

• Disintegrating tablet.
• Tablet.
• Film.
• Solution.

Reglan

If you have slow stomach emptying, consider talking to your doctor about Reglan. Doctors typically prescribe Reglan to patients who need help getting their stomach content moving into their upper digestive tract and avoiding frequent nausea and heartburn.

However, this isn’t Reglan’s only use. Reglan can be used to treat migraine pain, especially when taken at the onset of a migraine, according to a 2017 study. If you’ve been suffering from migraine pain but are in relatively good health without many serious medical conditions, Reglan may be an ideal treatment drug for you. At Nurx™, we don’t carry Reglan specifically, but we do have the generic version, Metoclopramide, to help you ease the pain of your migraines.
