I have not received a reply, are we still online?

I was getting ready to head to the clinic....sorry for the delay :)

At her age the safest thing with persistent nausea would be to have her MD take a look at her.

If you don't want to do that you can try some over the counter medications such as Pepto Bismol, meclizine 25mg or Emetrol. I am not sure which, if any of these USA medications are available in the UK, but you can talk to the pharmacist and she can point you in the right direction.

Does this make sense to you?
