Thanks for providing additional information.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe,it's food poisoning/viral gastroenteritis.

So she should take OTC Emetrol.

Also take OTC Zantac.

She should hydrate herself with Gatorade.

She should eat a bland diet.

And take OTC Motrin.

If she'll not able to keep liquids down with persistent vomiting then see a doctor at emergency room for injectable anti-emetic medications and IV fluids.
