Some nausea drugs to stop being sold in U.S.

Filed under:

U.S. health officials are starting to ensure that companies selling suppositories that contain trimethobenzamide (to combat nausea) stop selling those products.

The reason? Well, these drugs and medicines have not been proven effective according to health officials in the U.S. Products containing trimethobenzamide are frequently used to combat nausea and vomiting and are available with a prescription only.

The brand names that are affected are Tigan, Tebamide, T-Gen, Trimazide and Trimethobenz, all of which have not been approved by the FDA.
