Drank Alcohol have vomiting, tried saltine crackers and pepto bismal tablet. Cause for vomiting?

My 20 yr old son drank what seems to be a decent amount of alcohol (vodka and rum) on Friday night. He started vomiting around noon yesterday (Sat) and hasn t stopped yet (it s now 8:30 Mtn on Sun). We ve tried Sprite, saltine crackers, Dramimine and about 20 min ago Pepto Bismal tablets. He had the saltine last night, but didn t keep it down. I just had him try to eat another cracker again since he hasn t eaten since that last cracker and prior to that he hasn t eaten since Fri night. Is there anything else he can do?

Hi ajseng

your son seems to have alcohol induced gastritis i.e inflammation of lining of stomach.
you may try antiemetic like metocloperamide, proton pump inhibitors like omeprazole and glucose. if he is not tolerating orally, iv administration may be needed.

kindly consult your family physician soon

best wishes
