Hydration, meds: During a bout of vomiting, a patient might be treated with hydration and anti-emetic medication to decrease nausea and vomiting. No definitive treatment has been proven to be effective in clinical trials. However, because there is an association between cyclic vomiting and migraines, an anti-migraine medication is sometimes effectively used between bouts of vomiting.
