You may take dimenhydrinate or diphenhydramine which are over the counter medications for vomiting. You may try sipping water every 10-15 minutes, after taking medicine.

Pepto Bismol too may help.

Once your nausea subside, you may try Pedialyte or Gatorade so electrolytes are recuperated.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

Ok so I just threw up again, but now I can control my breathing. Not sure what’s going on. I love Powerade and Gatorade so that’s not a problem. I just hope that I can keep it down.
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I randomly feel pretty good right now after vomiting for the 4th time. I barely had any energy before vomiting and now it feels like a lot of my energy has been restored. Haven’t vomited in about 5 years so I don’t have too much experience with this.
Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 5 months ago

With the anti vomiting medications, there should be some benefit in next half an hour. If the vomiting is persistent and you are unable to drink any liquids; there is small possibility of electrolyte derangement and dehydration.

In that case you may need to go to urgent care clinic or emergency room.

It is privilege assisting you.

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.
