Gastroenterologist 's  Response
If your vomiting contained blood, you should consult gastroenterologist, who may suggest endoscopy. Bleeding may occur because of ulcers, dilated veins in esophagus if you have alcohol related liver disease or cancer etc. So proper diagnosis is important.
Duration of treatment depends upon cause for bleeding. Avoid pain-killers.
