Some individuals who take ibuprofen may experience nausea and vomiting due to cellular damage to the digestive tract. When cellular damage is detected in the gastrointestinal tract, the brainstem receives signals with this information from the individual's mechanoreceptors and chemoreceptors. As a result of this process, the affected individual's solitary tract nucleus, motor vagus nucleus, and the central pattern generator are triggered. Once these structures have been activated, a chain reaction occurs that results in the individual feeling the urge to vomit. The individual's saliva production increases and the movement of food through their digestive tract slows down. Should an ulcer form in the stomach or intestine as a result of ibuprofen use, blood from the lesion can also trigger these mechanisms and cause nausea and vomiting.
