Call 911 if the person has any of the following symptoms: Pain in the middle or lower right side of the abdomen Headache or stiff neck and light hurts the eyes Vomiting blood or black, tarry stools Confusion or lethargy
Get medical care if the person has any of the following symptoms: Can't keep down liquids or foods for more than 24 hours Fever with abdominal pain Signs of dehydration (dizziness; decreased, dark urination; fatigue) Unable to take medication the person normally takes
Self Care for Vomiting Have the person drink small amounts of water, sports drinks, or clear liquids. Don't give the person solid food until vomiting has stopped. When the person can tolerate food, try small amounts of the BRAT diet: bananas, rice, applesauce, and toast.
What is your oral temperature? What meds are you taking? If you are vomiting, stop eating until the vomiting stops. If a medication is causing the vomiting, stop taking it.
