Range of general medications
Many of the medications in the class of our General section are used for specific conditions and are therefore, included in other sections, but they may also have other uses, which is why they are included here. For example, prednisone is an anti-inflammatory that is used to treat extreme cases of asthma or allergy and is included in our Asthma/Allergy section; it is also used for other conditions such as a hormone supplement for a deficiency of natural corticosteroid production by the adrenal gland. Allopurinol is used to treat gout and is included in our Arthritis/Bone and Joint section
, but is also used to treat kidney stones and is included under General Medications.
Some of the sub-categories in our General section are included because they may be easier to find in this section, although they are also included in other sections, for example, anti-nausea medications that are also in the Digestive section
. Dietary supplements for joint health are also included in our Arthritis/Allergy section. Motilium is included in our Digestive and Breastfeeding section
Dietary supplements available under our General section are products that include a selection of vitamins and minerals to promote general health and boost the immune system. Another product contains specific nutrients to promote healthy joints.
Causes of nausea
Nausea has many causes including, digestive problems, reaction to chemotherapy or surgery, motion sickness or vertigo due to Meniere's syndrome. Several medications are available for treating the specific causes of each type of nausea and these are listed in the appropriate category of our General section.
