I picked up some of this elixir over the course of the school year for my athletes that I work with, and that is exactly what it is. It is magic! I haven't had a product do so well what it was intended to do. I work with a variety or athletes, both sick and injured, at a college. When these athletes get sick, I am their primary health care source. So in the case of trying to get them through the school day without throwing up or experiencing nausea and stomach aches, I give them some of the Emetrol liquid. Besides the initial "Ew, cherry flavor" reaction, the athletes feel so much better after using it. I myself went on an antibiotic that gave me really adverse side effects when taking it, and I couldn't find a good way to take the medicine without getting sick to my stomach. I too, took some Emetrol and I couldn't believe how well it controlled my nausea and upset stomach. This is definitely the best fix I have found for any stomach ailments. I have had kids get sick before games, and with a teaspoon or two of Emetrol, they are able to play in the games no problem. It is a miracle cure! I'm sure it is great for hangovers too!
