Sip,sip,sip: If you have access to a cola drink, you can sometimes settle your stomach by sipping flat cola through ice chips. The sugar in the mix somehow settles the stomach in many. If unsuccessful, call your doc's service & see if they can prescribe some Phenergan (promethazine) or zofran, both of which can help nausea. Sometimes just sipping small amounts of gateraid over many hours will break the cycle of vomiting.
