Hi! I was put onto strong antibiotics yesterday to treat a tooth infection that had spread to my sinuses. I need to keep my antibiotics down, but have just started with stomach flu. I know for sure that it is stomach flu as I have been exposed to it (this was 2 days ago) – and was also looking after a baby who had it and sneezed on me…. How can I prevent vomiting? I need to keep my antibiotics down and have not yet vomited. Just an upset stomach and nausea. I have taken a Valoid and am wearing acubands on my wrists for the nausea.
You have already taken Valoid, which is the correct medicine for vomiting. Additionally, you may try the following home remedies, which will further reduce the vomitting tendency:Lemon juice is an effective home treatment for vomiting. Make a mixture of water, 1 teaspoon of lemon juice, ½ teaspoon of sugar and a pinch of baking soda, stir all these ingredients well and drink it. This will immediately give relief from vomiting. Ginger is another ingredient to cure the problem of vomiting
