Anti-Sickness Injections

If you are suffering from nausea or vomiting, IPSA can offer you a consultation with one of our doctors in a clean, quiet environment. We can offer you an immediate appointment at a time to suit you.

During your appointment, the doctor will go through your medical history to ascertain the cause of your diarrhoea or sickness. We will give you a full examination to rule out any serious causes for your symptoms.

If you need to be referred to hospital for further management, we will refer you to your local hospital’s medical or surgical team and arrange transport for you.

Treating Sickness at IPSA

If your symptoms can be managed at the IPSA clinic, our doctors will discuss different methods of treatment for your symptoms, as well as diet and management at home.

If your symptoms are severe enough we may give you a Valoid injection, which contains the active ingredient cyclizine.

Cyclizine is an antihistamine mainly used to prevent and treat nausea and vomiting after surgery or radiotherapy, or associated with middle ear disorders.

It is given by injection when you cannot take tablets due to profuse vomiting. The injection will work in approximately 15-20 minutes and can stop nausea and vomiting better than medication can.

Cyclizine anti-sickness injections also work for

  • Nausea, vomiting, and vertigo attacks associated with middle ear disorders such as Meniere’s disease
  • Travel sickness
  • Severe vomiting
  • Gastroenteritis

We will also give you prescription strength anti-sickness and antacid medication to take home.

If we believe that you have Traveller’s Diarrhoea, – (diarrhoea and vomiting caused by a bacterial infection) our doctor may also decide to give you a course of antibiotics.

IPSA doctors will be available by phone on a seven-day basis in case you need any more advice or support during your recovery process. If you need an immediate sick note to cover absences from work, we can provide this during your consultation.

If you are suffering from nausea and vomiting, contact IPSA medical for a same-day appointment. Alternatively, book online for immediate access to a doctor.
