Should be ok: In general, we worry if the vomiting occurs within 30 minutes of taking the mifeprostone and in this case advise to take it again. 3 hours after taking the pill should be long enough to absorb the medication. If she continues to vomit for more than a day after taking the pill, see your doctor.
