Customer Question

I have been experiencing dry heaves, usually in the morning. They are not every day, but quite common. What do I do to control the dry heaves and what are the causes? Does the use of antiemetics work. Thanks

Hi there,Dry heaves can be caused by the underlying acid reflux problem. most commonly.So trying out an antacid like Mylanta and Pepcid twice daily should help.Other causes of dry heaves include gallbladder problem, liver disease, diabetes, thyroid condition.These conditions should be evaluated by your doctor.Please avoid too much carbs in your dinner.High protein and fiber based diet will help to prevent dry heaves.
