I quit smoking for a month now and now getting nausea

Patient : I quit smoking for a month now and now getting nausea...why and how to stop it...is that a side effect
Doctor :   Hello, Thank you for your medical query at AsktheDoctor.com I understand your concern. If you were a chain smoker a nd you quit suddenly the withdrawal symptoms would be tremors, palpitations, insomnia, gastritis, which can lead to nausea. I will advise you to take Cap. Omeprazole 20 mg twice daily for a week, and Tab. Ondansetron 4 mg to be taken once before every meal for 3-5 days. This will reduce your nausea. Hope this was helpful, Regards
