Detailed Answer:
Hello,

I can understand your concern. If syp. Emeset constitution is 2mg/5ml, you can give 5 ml three times a day. As you have given first dose, you can repeat dose at least after 5 to 6 hrs in case of vomiting doesn't stop, otherwise no need.

Kindly watch for other symptoms like fever, abdominal pain,loose motion and maintain proper hydration. Avoid solid foods.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further. Thank you.
