It depends: Ultimately my decision would depend on whether or not you saw the medications when you threw up. None of these medications are life-sustaining and therefore if you were to skip a day, nothing would happen.

Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.
