thanks for writing to health care magic

your doctor prescribed you antiemetic........... to prevent further vomitings

he should be given diet in small quantities now frequently till his vomitings are under control

pl ensure that you do not give him stomach full at a time

liquid feeds should be given (like ORS)........ Solid food should be withheld till he stops vomitings

avoid giving oily and fatty stuff now

he should be to normal diet as soon as possible after vomiting stops

hope this helps

take care
