Hi doctor,

Three days back, I had food for dinner. The food was spicy. Next day, in the morning, I vomited it completely. I suffer from diarrhea for the past two days, and I feel tired. Please suggest me.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

You are suffering from acute gastroenteritis. As you are feeling tired, you must take ORS (oral rehydration solution) after passing of each stool. Otherwise, you would become dehydrated. Take plenty of water and ORS. Avoid taking spicy foods. Avoid eating foods from outside. Take a healthy homemade meal. For vomiting, you must take antiemetics. You can take tablet Emistat 8 mg (Ondansetron) one tablet in the morning, afternoon and evening before having a meal for three days. Please say whether you have abdominal pain. You should not take medication on your own without consulting a doctor. Follow these instructions. If there is no improvement, then you can take an antibiotic.
