Customer Question
We are grandparents to...

We are grandparents to an 18 month old whos parents are away for the night. Our 18 month old threw up after her milk feed and has subsequently thrown up five times - mainly water that she asks for after each event - she is tired now - and we have some concern putting her to bed without any further food or liquid - any thoughts.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

No medications just happened this afternoon on a trip to the park three hous ago

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

This is an an 18 month old - no medications no alergies

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Nothing that I can think of -

Hello.... I understand your concern. Right now if you have any antiemetic medication in hand you can give it a single dose.

If you have suspension domperidone with the strength of 1 mg per 1 ml you can give her 1 ml right now.

If you have syrup ondansetron with the strength of 2mg per 5 ml, you can give her 4 ml.

If she had started to vomit so many times she might develop diarrhoea also if so keep her hydrated with oral rehydration solution.

I feel better already! Thank 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.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
