Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Viral infection is a common cause of persistent nausea and vomiting.
Besides peptobismol, you can try over the counter Meclizine tablets to stop nausea and vomiting.
Persistent nausea and vomiting can be caused by the liver disease ( hepatitis), gallbladder disease ( gall stones or cholecystitis), acute pancreatitis or inflammation of the pancreas.
If your symptoms do not improve in few hours, it is better to go to the ER for further evaluation.

Please drink plenty of fluids including Gatorade to prevent dehydration.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
