If I threw up my pain medication how long should I wait till I can take more?

Depends!: If you threw up because of opioid-induced nausea you are taking too much or the wrong one. In either case talk to your doctor. It also depends on how long after you took the med and whether it is a immediate release or a sustained release compound. So you really need to talk to your doctor about these situations. ...Read more

Is there any kind of medication I can take to stop vomiting?

Yes: There is, however, I think its important to figure out the cause of the vomiting. Treating symptoms alone could miss a serious diagnosis. See a physician for this please. ...Read more

What's a GOOD nausea/vomiting medication I could take besides Ondansetron? That won't make me drowsy. I take Ondansetron but it doesn't seem to help.

What's a GOOD nausea/vomiting medication I could take besides Ondansetron? That won't make me drowsy. I take Ondansetron but it doesn't seem to help.

Look harder: Nausea/vomiting 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 cause. ...Read more

My son had wisdom teeth removed 16 hours ago. He has been vomiting for the last 12 hours and cannot take pain medications. What should I do?

My son had wisdom teeth removed 16 hours ago. He has been vomiting for the last 12 hours and cannot take pain medications. What should I do?

Call oral surgeon: I'd be concerned about dehydration as well as not being able to take pain medicine. Is your son swollen, bruised, is he still bleeding, did he have general anesthesia, hence the vomiting. Your oral surgeon knows all the particulars about your son's procedure and should have an emergency number for you to call! So don't waste any time, call now! ...Read more

Is GERD a serious disease? My daughter is 3years old. Lately she's been vomiting and having diarea. I took her to the emergency not to long ago and she was diagnose with gastroesophageal reflux disease. She was under medication for dehydration and she was

Maybe, maybe not: We generally describe gerd as the return of stomach contents into the esophagus to the degree that heartburn, fussiness or weight loss develops. Since a dry burp has the same mechanics, it is not much of a stretch to say all kids have some reflux, but only some of them symptoms. It can be transient as part of a gut virus, or longer term. I find mild disease common but significant disease rare. ...Read more

In second stage lung cancer is it important to first take medication for blood coughing and vomiting, before starting the actual therapy?

In second stage lung cancer is it important to first take medication for blood coughing and vomiting, before starting the actual therapy?

No 2 cases the same: In clinical stage ii non-small-cell cancer, the burning question may actually be "candidate for surgical cure". If you are vomiting at this stage, one burning question is possible brain metastases; if you have intractable bloody cough, we want to rule out a cancer-induced pneumonia. The decision to delay or proceed with chemotherapy is too tricky to be settled in 400 words. Good luck. ...Read more

I have been struggling with what I can assume is a stomach bug since Saturday afternoon causing nausea and vomiting. What medication should I take?

I have been struggling with what I can assume is a stomach bug since Saturday afternoon causing nausea and vomiting. What medication should I take?

Depends: Would be worth a doctor examination as nausea and vomiting without diarrhoea may be another cause such as migraine, urine or other infection or other abdominal problem. What medications one can take for the nausea and vomiting depends on your medical history and current medications. There are a variety of options. Best to see doctor to sort the above out. All the best. ...Read more

Minereas disease I have minereas disease and was told I had a twisted artery in my neck could this be effecting the minereas because now no medication works dizzy and ringing in ears pretty much constant can't take many more 8 hours of vomiting

Meniere's Syndrome: Inner ear, only one side ringing, vertigo (dizziness with nausea), may occur in families.
Limit or eliminate caffeine, salt, chocolate.
See a physician who treats these cases

if the episodes occur often, consider an endolymphatic shunt (surgical procedure). Successfully works for many. Hearing aids do not work to reduce ringing. Some people outgrow vertigo, but not ringing. ...Read more

What next step should I take or medication should I take? Vomiting three day with high fever and fatigue and sharp back (mostly)/body aches I took dayquill flu for the first two days and nothing I just started to take emetrol but that is just making my sy

The: 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

Child vomiting can't keep fluids down how long should I wait for iv?

Child vomiting can't keep fluids down how long should I wait for iv?

Depends on variables: The kid that is able to cooperate with you and take well enough to pee every 6 hours can usually be followed at home. Ice chips, popsicles, sips of oral rehydration solution are all helpful. If the kid cannot keep up, wets less than every 8 hours or "looks bad" to you, likely needs an IV and inpatient care. ...Read more

I think I either have food poisoning. Liquid diahrrea, nausea, vomiting, and stomach cramping. How long should I wait before going to doctor.

My daughter has a fever breathing heavy threw up once runny nose and a cough should I take her in or can I wait till tomorrow?

My daughter has a fever breathing heavy threw up once runny nose and a cough should I take her in or can I wait till tomorrow?

It depends: It depends on how old your child is, and how sick she seems to be acting. If you get the fever down a bit with tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen, and she perks up and feels better for a while, that's fairly reassuring that it isn't too serious. If you get the fever down and she still feels terrible, can't keep down fluids, or has more trouble breathing, take her to the doctor tonight. ...Read more

How long does it take to digest food? My daughter threw up a pickle she ate 3 nights ago along with a ton of other stuff!

How long does it take to digest food? My daughter threw up a pickle she ate 3 nights ago along with a ton of other stuff!

Not normal: Food you eat will stay in stomach for about 3-4 hours or so then will go down to your small bowel etc. Some conditions like in diabetes, gastric emptying time can be longer if diabetes is affecting the nerve innervating the stomach. You can not throw something up from 3 nights ago, however. If you do, that means probably you have blockage that prevents the food came down completely. ...Read more

How long does it take to digest a combination BC pill like Nortrel? I threw up 4 hours after taking it. Is it considered "missed"?

How long does it take to digest a combination BC pill like Nortrel? I threw up 4 hours after taking it. Is it considered "missed"?

Emptying time: In general, 50% of stomach contents are emptied in about an hour after ingestion. So it is unlikely that the pill was vomited 4 hours later. So I would not count today as a "missed" day. ...Read more
