Stay hydrated


When fighting the "stomach flu" (which is not always influenza), the most important thing is to stay hydrated. Take small sips of water and/or dilute Gatorade, or Pedialyte. If you vomit it up, wait 30 min or so and try again, slowly. If you can't keep anything down, ER. Anti-diarrhea meds aren't bad but you should consult your doctor, as it could mask other things. Hydration is still the key.
