Yes, meclizine at 12.5 mg once daily is reasonable. As hungry as she is, you should still fast her for 6 hours which will give the meclizine time to take effect. Her water needs to be replaced with ice cubes for her to lick so that drinking excessively doesn't prompt yet more vomiting.

Please note that meclizine should be used with caution in patients with severe cardiac failure or angle-closure glaucoma. The usual adverse effect with this drug is sedation; less frequently dry mucous membranes and tachycardia (rapid heart rate) are seen. Contradictory central nervous system stimulation has also been reported.
