The symptoms you describe are consistent with a common cold or flu. Supportive care will help with your symptoms. This includes maintaining adequate hydration, taking analgesics like tylenol (acetaminophen) or advil for pain and/or fever, medications aimed at specific symptoms (i.E dayquil), and plenty of rest. If your symptoms worsen or persist, or the abdominal pain is still present you should see your doctor.
Best of luck. ...Read more
Yes: Emetrol is an over the counter preparation offered to relieve nausea and vomiting. This flavored material uses some complex carbohydrates to settle the stomach & may break the cycle of recurrent retching. Years ago we used cola over chipped ice sipped slowly for the same purpose & had variable success. Sometimes just sucking on ice chips will break the retching cycle. ...Read more
Find cause of nausea: Nausea may be gi-related (food poisoning, peptic disease, gastroparesis, due to biliary & pancreatic disease, gas/bloat syndrome, small bowel problems). Consider "central" causes: motion sickness, vertigo, migraine headache, brain problems (some very serious). Also, rule out infection (? Urinary tract), medication side effects, pregnancy, & even reaction to stress. Find & treat the cause--see doc. ...Read more
No.: Emetrol is the brand name of an over-the-counter upset stomach medicine taken to relieve nausea and vomiting. It is a phosphorated carbohydrate solution containing fructose. It is unknown how it works. Taking this is analogous to drinking syrup mixed without the carbonation in soft drinks (coke syrup). ...Read more
CAN'T BE SURE: Emetrol is a phospholated carbohydrate solution and should be safe, but the only answer is that we can't be sure. It has never been tested in pregnant women and really can't be for ethical reasons. However, there really is not anything in it that would potentially cause problems in the first trimester. The best answer is to ask your ob-gyn. ...Read more
Diclegis: Nausea and vomiting in the first trimester of pregnancy can be very difficult. Diclegis is a very effective FDA category A medication that can be prescribed by your doctor. This is the medication that I start with when helping a patient with this problem. Ask your doctor if you are a candidate or schedule a virtual Healthtap visit with a doctor in your state. ...Read more
Can emetrol really stop vomiting due to gastroenteritis/norovirus or is something stronger needed?
Vomiting: For adult patients most physicians prescribe medications other than emetrol to control vomiting. Medications like Dramamine, phernergan, compazine (prochlorperazine) or zofran are examples. Severe, persistent vomiting leads to dehydration, electrolyte disorders, kidney failure and, of course, must be thoroughly evaluated by a physician. ...Read more

Multiple measures: You may use vitamin B6, Ginger Ale, Avoiding food that trigger nausea and see if those measures help. If persistant symptoms, try Reglan or Phenergan (promethazine).

See you docto: That a lot of vomiting and as you vomit, you are losing vital electrolytes and water & if this keeps up & will end up being hospitalized. So, if you can't keep anything down, including water, call your doctor or be seen today at the urgent care center, and get medical help. More important if you are also pregnant and need to be tested if you haven't been already. Being constipated isn't good either ...Read more
Every time I take liquid pepto I vomit. Currently on antibiotic (metro) for tooth infection - super nauseated. What can I take? Disallowed emetrol.
Conflict: Pepto Bismol (bismuth subsalicylate) can deactivate antibiotic. Report its use to the Dentist that prescribed the antibiotic. Antibiotic will not cure dental infection but will reduce its severity until you run out of pills, then infection worsens again. You need Root Canal treatment or Extraction. Call your Dentist for support. ...Read more

I have had very bad morning sickness (8 weeks pregnant). I have a hard time keeping food down. Is it ok to take emitrol!?
There are none...: Even the strongest opiates only "take the edge off" for people in chronic pain. Meds are only one part of dealing with the pain. A useful tool, but pain is so necessary for survival that we are not "allowed" to monkey with it much. In acute pain, the transition from miserable to less miserable can be great. In chronic pain, it's just part of the plan. ...Read more
Sometimes: Sometimes they are. For the most part, expired drugs simply lose potency once past their expiration date. There are, however, some drugs that actually become harmful if taken after they expire. As such, it is best to throw out any medications you have after a year. ...Read more
ASPRIN: Actually no one has decided on 'safest'. Asprin has been around since before you were born and unless you take too much (yes, too much of anything isn't good) most people are okay with it. If the pain it too severe for asprin you need to know what causes it. Good diagnosis is called for. See the dr. ...Read more
