Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

The symptoms you have described of having severe abdominal pain & vomiting since last 5 days is most likely suggestive of a condition called gastroenteritis what you call as stomach flu. Gastroenteritis is the irritation and inflammation of the digestive tract.Its most common causes are:Food poisoning, viral infections, food allergies, improper diet, and intestinal parasites or bacterial infections.

Following is recommended for you now:

-Tab meclizine hydrochloride(brand name: Dramamine).This will help you greatly in stopping the nausea & vomiting.
-Tab.Acetaminophen for relief from abdominal pain & cramps

Both these medications are available as OTC(over the counter) without prescription & will help you greatly.If still the symptoms persists,then you need to go to ER as shots & antibiotics will be prescribed accordingly. Usually & most likely,the symptoms gets subside with these treatment & doctor visit is less likely required.

Thank you.

Hope this helped
