May help,not prevent: If you've been vomiting after excessive drinking pedialyte will help restore electrolytes you lost. It does nothing to prevent hangover/vomiting. Of course the best prevention is to not drink excessively, but if you do on occasion a good b-complex & vit c prior to drinking may help and homeopathic nux vomica 30c usually helps hangover symptoms. A hangover is your body telling you you're poisoned! ...Read more

How can I solve vomitting /sickness/ hangover after a night out?

By not drinking: too much. There are scores, perhaps hundreds of folk remedies for hangover, and anytime there are that many "solutions" to a problem, it's because none of them work all that well. If you drink too much, you will get a hangover, especially with beers, red wines, whiskeys, which have higher rates than "clear" alcohol - but both can cause them. Latest cure I heard about - warm sprite. Cut down!!!!! ...Read more

What do you recommend if I have a hangover and have felt nauseas without vomiting for about 17 hours?

Not unusual: With a severe hangover to have it last a day or more, but not usually longer. Firstly, don't drink so much that you get hung over. If you cannot control your drinking, you need help from professionals and should see a chemical dependency program. If your nausea continues after 24 hours or so, see a doctor. Stay hydrated, force yourself to take in adequate clear fluids (apple juice, jello, broths). ...Read more

Vomiting: It is not the norm. I would seek medical attention at urgent care/ doctor as you have to make sure you can hold down fluids otherwise you dehydrate which also causes vomiting. Also excessive vomiting can damage your esophagus and cause electrolyte abnormalities .You likely need IV fluids because you are dehydrated and need electrolyte replenishment. Seek medical attention today. ...Read more
