give him 1 table spoon of honey with a pinch of salt every hr till his vomiting stops.
add antacid syrup, tabs & anti emetic tabs on empty stomach. give him oral electral powder with cold bisleri water. if this does not work get him injected from your family doctor & consult him.

Hi Julie, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
He is indeed suffering from Alcohol Intoxication which is the consequence of drinking large amounts of alcohol in a short period of time. Drinking too much too quickly can affect breathing, heart rate, cause nausea and vomiting. He needs immediate medical attention as he is losing body fluids, call for emergency medical help right away. Until the help arrives keep him sit up and try to keep him awake to prevent loss of consciousness.

Good Luck.

Good day, We went out on Saturday night, had a couple of drinks. Sunday morning from about 4am I started vomiting. I slept for a couple of hours and started to vomit again. I ve never in my life vomited to badly and so much. I couldn t even keep a sip of water in. It eventually stopped around 2pm. But now I have serve burning pain in my upper abdominal after eating. And a very sore and uncomfortable feeling at the top of my stomach (top of my ribcage). The burning pain in my stomach comes and goes. I am scared it is an ulcer or maybe a hernia? Any advice would help. Regards Celicia.

My 16 yo daughter has been involuntary throwing up every thing she consumes for the past 3 months. Almost as soon as she eats and continues until her stomach has nothing left . She has had all tests possible with a gastroenterologist, including barium swallow , gastroscopy , ultrasound , and blood tests and been in hospital where they cannot help . They decided it was due to anxiety , so we sought therapy for her Where they pointed out her ADD was worse than we thought . ( never was treated ) , though said she does not have an eating disorder , but maybe she has conversion disorder . They directed us to a psychiatrist , who put her case forward to a meeting of 10 psychiatrists who feel it does it add up . They decided she should try Xanax to treat the anxiety , as if that was the cause , the vomiting may stop or possibly be less often . Then they tried another anxiety drug but both didn’t work . They are convinced there is something physical that has been missed . Currently she has been given an anti depressant mirtizapine , which has a connection in helping to stop vomiting . She is trying this for a week at least , but so far after 3 days she is not feeling great and the vomiting continues . It seems she is a medical mystery . Can anyone help or suggest what to do ?

My brother, who lives in another state has non stop vomiting. I am alarmed to hear he is still having this. He has had this problem for 1 1/2 years now!!! He was snowboarding and his daughter hit him, knocking him out. He immediately started vomiting. He was hospitalized for a week, multiple tests have been run. Doctors in the area are baffled, can t seem to find the source. I am EXTREMELY concerned! I believe there is a tear or something internal that is being overlooked. Should he get a PET scan or something? I m just trying to think of anything to help get the proper diagnosis. HELP!!!! I work in a surgical unit & will ask the surgeons on Tues what & where we should be looking, but Tues is so far away! Before I pay I want to speak with my brother to make sure I ve got all s/s, plus find out all tests ran. Thank you.
