Medicines That Can Cause Nausea and Vomiting

Many nonprescription and prescription medicines can cause nausea or vomiting. A few examples are:

If you think that your nausea or vomiting may be caused by a medicine:

  • Call the doctor who prescribed the medicine to find out whether you should stop taking it or take a different one. An appointment may not be necessary.
  • If you are taking a nonprescription medicine, stop taking it. Call your doctor if you feel you need to continue taking the medicine.
