She was good yesterday but today she started throwing up again. She ate a bit at breakfast and then in the afternoon she threw up again. Is this typical for a stomach virus

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

Yes stomach virus related symptoms may come and go for about a week.

Ondansetron can cause constipation as well.

Acid reflux is also possible as another cause.

Hence an antacid can be tried as well besides ondansetron.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
