Brief Answer:
Dramamine or ER

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
First check his BP, Pulse and temperature. If they are deteriorating, please take him to ER.
If he is not able to sip liquids then it is important to give IV fluids to stop sinking.
If he is doing ok and can wait till morning you can give him an over the counter anti vomiting medicine available at any pharmacy without prescription, its called Dramamine. Alternatively you can give Antivert as well.
