Penicillin.: although any medication can cause side effects, vomiting would be unlikely in this setting. Although vomiting can be a rare side effect of penicillin, if you do not have any nausea or vomiting to start with, it is doubtful that you will get any now. If you have any side effects from the medication, however, see your doctor. Good luck.
