Can I give my son unrefrigerated pedialyte?

Yes: Sometimes refrigerated to improve the taste. Unopened OK. Once it has been opened, better to keep it chilled but you can warm it to room temperature before giving it. If you are using it for vomiting, give small amounts often. If not working, have him seen. All the best.

Start slow: Start with an ounce or two at a time. If he cannot keep that down, see your doctor.
