I am sorry your father has bad nausea

most nausea is caused by excessive stomach acid in the stomach causing gastritis inflammation.

there are over the counter stomach acid reducing agents like maalox, mylanta, zantac, prilosec which can help decrease stomach acid.

these often can help decrease stomach nausea.

pepto bismal can help some patients as well

let me know if you have other questions.

if done for now, please leave positive rating of 3-5 stars so I can get credit for helping you today

Expert:  Dr. David replied 4 months ago.

there are over the counter stomach acid reducing agents like maalox, mylanta, zantac, prilosec which can help decrease stomach acid.

you can use prilosec (omeprazole) 20mg over the counter in the morning and also zantac (ranitidine) 150mg at night time and during the day he can use maalox or mylanta liquid antacids to decrease stomach acid.

it doesn't sound like he has tried these medications yet.
