You may not have: Enough liquid to vomit it up, or need further stimulation to reverse the peristalsis. If you know for sure you've had food poisoning, usually it produces vomiting by itself. Syrup of ipecac used to help in this, and now it's not available for sale.So, bottom line is you have to call the poison control center, and get specific instructions what to do, and they will want to know what you swallowed.

Should not last week: Food poisoning should NOT last weeks! If you are still having symptoms, there is probably something else going on and you should see your doctor or a gastroenterologist, have your stool checked (especially for C.diff), and possibly get scoped (endoscopy and colonoscopy).
