Requires a few more details..

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXX,
Thanks for posting your query in HealthcareMagic,

I have read through your query and can certainly understand your concern,

From the symptoms you have described here, it seems you have had a food poisoning.

Before I could guide you any further, I would like to know a few more details related:

- do you have associated loose stools, abdominal pain, fever?
- any history of food from outside recently?
- have you tried any medication?

Meanwhile, I would suggest you to take Tab. EMESET 4mg one tablet, soon enough to stop the vomiting. Take it twice daily for 2 days and then as an when needed.

Need for any further medications like antibiotics can be decided on the above details only.

Kindly revert back soon with your details.

Regards

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXX,
Thanks for writing back,

From the details give, you do seem to have a bacterial or viral food poisoning.

Therefore, it is advisable to start with broad spectrum coverage antibiotic.

If I was your treating physician, I would suggest you to do the following:

- Take an antibiotic comprising of a combination of ofloxacin and ornidazole, which is an antibiotic, to be taken twice daily for 5 days.

- take Tab. EMESET 4mg twice daily for 2 days and then only if needed, to treat profuse vomiting.

- Always keep yourself hydrated by consuming plenty of fluids, fruit juices.

- consume bland foods like soups, curd, fruits.

- avoid outside food for a few days henceforth.

- If at all you seem to have repeated episodes of loose stools which can be tiring, you may consider Tab. ENUF once.

Just make sure to keep yourself hydrated and this should resolve soon enough.

I hope this helps.

Please feel free to discuss further or else kindly close and give your feedback.

Regards
