Brief Answer: Due to methotrexate Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for trusting us with your health concern. The nausea that you are having is likely to be due to methotrexate. The constant nausea can be decreased by decreasing the dose of methotrexate or taking over the counter anti emetics like metoclopramide. Other prescription medicines like ondansetron are also helpful in reducing the drug induced nausea. You can get it prescribed from your general physician. Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have. Wishing you good health. Regards. Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
