Question: Hello doctor,

I ate out day before yesterday. Since yesterday evening I am feeling vomiting sensation with headache and body pains.
I took Sporlac 2 tablets in morning. Ofloxacin 1 talet in afternoon followed by omeprazole 1tablet. But there is no relief.
There is too much discomfort in stomach and giddiness now.

My 8 year old son also having same symptoms not that severe though.

Please suggest good medicine for both of us as we have to travel day after tomorrow.

Brief Answer:
Seems Food poisoning

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your query.

This seems like food poisoning. Since there is discomfort in stomach, I think antibiotics to be avoided as they may do more harm than good.

For vomiting take Tab or syrup Ondem. For adults its dose is 4mg 1-2 times a day. For kids its according to weight, half teaspoon should be enough.

It does not seem acidity. Its more of gastritis from another cause. Therefore Omeprazole might be somewhat effective.
Mostly you will need to let the phase pass on its own. It should pass in a few days.

Meanwhile drink enough water (clean drinking water). If there is diarhea or dehydration, then ORS to be taken after every motion or vomiting. Take foods that are soothing to stomach. Avoid spicy and fried foods. Also avoid raw foods.

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