Unfortunately, my family and I are highly prone to bouts of nausea. Fortunately, there's Nauzene! We always keep a bottle of this (or a package of the chewables) in the cabinet and it helps us all a lot. It works very quickly to soothe my nausea and the taste - while undoubtedly "medicine" - is pretty good and doesn't need to be washed down with something else. I don't find that it helps much with acid despite containing an anti-acid ingredient, but I also suffer from GERD and the dose might just not be high enough to help me personally; your mileage may vary.
