As you are suffering from hyperemesis , take injection of emset after consulting your doctor.

Afterwards when able to take orally take Doxinate 2 tablets in the night before sleep and one in morning,not SOS.
Have small frequent meals .

Thanks for the query.

Some amount of vomiting is common in early pregnancy. But according to your history you are having hyperemesis which you had in previous pregnancy also.
So you better once consult your doctor and get investigated to find out the cause for it.
If no underlying problem is found, you can take intravenous fluids to treat dehydration.
Then after improvement of general condition you can take anti emetics like ondarnsetron with your doctor's advice which will work probably. Once the vomitings get controlled you can keep the tablet as SOS and continue with doxinate.

Take care.
