Treatments for Vomiting

Treatments for Vomiting:

Treatment plans for vomiting are individualized depending on the underlying cause, the presence of coexisting diseases, the age and medical history of the patient, and other factors. Treatment generally involves a multifaceted plan that addresses the cause, minimizes the discomfort of vomiting and decreases the risk of developing serious complications, such as dehydration.

When vomiting is caused by a self-limiting condition, such as a viral gastroenteritis or indigestion, the treatment includes resting the stomach by not eating solid foods until vomiting has passed for a period of time and ensuring adequate hydration. This can be achieved by drinking water or an oral rehydrating fluid, such as Pedialyte.

In some cases, medications are used to treat vomiting. Antibiotics may be prescribed when vomiting is caused by a bacterial infection, such as in bacterial food poisoning caused by shigella, salmonella or campylobacter. Treatment of vomiting caused by certain conditions, such as motion sickness or chemotherapy may include drugs called anti-emetics.

Treatment of severe vomiting that does not resolve or leads to dehydration requires hospitalization and rehydration with intravenous fluids.
