This is Dr. David
cold medication on an empty stomach is not a good idea.
you can try taking maalox and mylanta and pepto bismal and see if these help calm down your stomcah
you can also try zantac or prilosec to help calm down stomach acid to see if these help settle your stomach
ginger ale might help
BRAT diet of bananas, rice, toast, applesauce, bland diet would be a good idea for now.
your stomach should get better with time
if it doesn't you should see a doctor for more testing
let me know if you have questions.
