This is Dr. David

yes, there are prescription medications which can help calm down nausea like zofran

and other prescription medications like omeprazole or nexium or protonix which can help decrease stomach acid.

excessive stomach acid production is the most common cause of upset stomach.

drinking alcohol or eating spicy foods, oily or fried foods, tomato sauces, fatty meals can often cause upset stomach

you can also try over the counter agents like pepto bistmal to help upset stomach.

eating ginger and ginger tea and ginger ale can help calm down mild nausea

there are over the counter stomach acid reducers like zantac, prilosec, maalox, mylanta which can be used as well to calm down stomach acid
