Are the new screen effects in iOS 7 making you nauseous? Late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel has something that could ease your queasiness.

Apple tweaked the screens in iOS 7 so that every app, icon, and folder zooms in and out each time you open or close them. The new OS also offers a parallax effect that moves the background display as you move your iPhone or iPad.

Alas, the new animated features apparently are causing motion sickness in a number of users. iOS 7 users chiming in at Apple's support forums are reporting a range of maladies , including dizziness, headaches, and nausea.

If you're among the suffering souls, look no further than Jimmy Kimmel for the remedy.

On his late-night "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" show Tuesday night, Kimmel served up a sketch unveiling a product called "Stop Looking at Your F**ing Phone Every Five Seconds!" Touted as a "safe and effective way to get fast relief," the new medication is designed to treat the signs and symptoms of nausea, headaches, and vertigo.

Have your doubts? You can ask your doctor about "Stop Looking at Your F**ing Phone Every Five Seconds!" But be warned: There may be some unpleasant side effects, including eye contact, conversations, facial expressions, and other human stuff.

"Seek medical help immediately if you try to use your fingers to zoom into someone's face," advises the sketch.
