Child has nausea, upset stomach after eating, constipation. Prescribed Gutclear. Help

Hello Doctor! My 3 year and a half year old son seems to have developed a vomiting tendency since the past three days. Although he doesn t vomit, his stomach becomes a bit upset after eating ,usually after lunch.He sometimes suffers from constipation too.A year and a half ago when he was constipated his paediatrician advised lactitol monohydrate 66.67%(Gutclear) for a month after which he was fine .Five months back he again had constipation and the doctor advised 15ml of Gutclear daily .Since his bowel movement became regular after a few days i stopped the medicine four months back.When asked he would say that he feels uneasy(maybe a bit bloated) and would have hiccups(usually after lunch).Otherwise he is a highly active and a happy child.Please help!

HI likely your son suffers from habitual constipation
is he having constipation now probably vomiting tendency may be related to that or some mild stomach infection but it should settle down
can give him some anti nausea syrup for 2 -3 days if required
that may help his bloat too
otherwise to treat his constipation he needs dietary and life style modification
increse his water intake and dietary fibre intake
dont stop lactitol abruptly taper dose
