Doctor :   Hello, Thanks for choosing "Ask The Doctor" for posting your query. You had taken quite a number of pills an d they might have damaged your stomach. This is responsible for the nausea and dizziness that you are having. There may be an excess acid in your stomach that might be causing these symptoms. You will need anti acid agents like ranitidine or rabeprazole to reduce the acid in your stomach. Further if the symptoms persist then you may be required to get a liver function test done. Liver function abnormalities can also present with similar symptoms. Do meet your doctor and get these medicines prescribed and also get a liver function test done. Hope I am able to answer your concerns. Wish you good health!
