Brief Answer:
Take half dose

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

I have reviewed your query and here is may advice.

Kindly let me know which medicine is it and what is the formulation (syrup, capsule etc).

If vomiting happens within 4 hrs, 10 to 30 % medicine can stay in stomach. So half of the dose may be taken, If it can be safely skipped then better to go for next dose at routine time.

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