Emetrol: Nausea Relief Trusted for Generations
Emetrol has been America's trusted nausea remedy for over 60 years. Developed in 1949 by Harry S. Kinney and Wallis R. Kinney of Columbus, Indiana, Emetrol received its trademark as a "preparation for the prevention of vomiting" in 1951.
In the 1950s and 1960s, Emetrol gained recognition in the scientific literature as a safe, inexpensive, effective nausea remedy. Over the years, Emetrol has also made its mark in popular culture, with mentions in novels, newspapers, advice books, and similar sources.
Emetrol remains the #1 pharmacist-recommended nausea remedy,1 and the National Institutes of Health has named it "one of the staples of a well-stocked home pharmacy."
Emetrol was acquired in 2008 by the Sarasota, Florida-based WellSpring Pharmaceutical Company, whose respected over-the-counter brands also include the antacid/anti-gas Gelusil®, the moisturizing cream Glaxal Base®, and the antifungal cream Micatin®.
