Metadata[+] Show full item record
There is no clear “best” therapy. Antihistamines, thiethylperazine (a phenothiazine), pyridoxine (vitamin B6), and ginger are all effective for the relief of nausea (SOR: A, meta-analysis). Ginger and antihistamines are probably comparable (SOR: A, meta-analysis). The combination of pyridoxine plus metoclopramide is more effective than prochlorperazine or promethazine given as single agents (SOR: B, single RCT).
