Customer Question
I had not slept...

I had not slept in 3 days. I just had my xanax refilled and can sleep for 4 hrs. However after staying up for 3 days and vomiting with intermittent intestinal pain

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

I have had the pain in the last couple of days. It feels like contractions of intestine

Your symptoms are suggestive of intestinal infection. You may need a course of antibiotics like Metrogyl. The initial management is as following;

1) PeptoBismol

2) Lomotil; may only be given if the diarrhea is vigorous.

3) Gatorade / Pedialyte

4) Plenty of fluids

5) BRAT diet; banana, rice, applesauce, toast. Vegetable broths / vegetable soups, coconut water also can help.

6) Probiotics

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
