Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to Ask A Doctor service.

I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

She can be given Syrup Ondansetron twice a day to prevent nausea and vomiting.
She can also take fluids or ORS in clean drinking water or salt and lime water to prevent giddiness. Record her blood pressure.

Hope this helps. Let me know if I can assist you further.
