Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

My son had breakfast this morning and after one hour he vomited. And continuously he was refusing food. I gave him cinnamon milk. The whole day he ate nothing. In the evening he ate two cookies and right after five minutes he vomited. Now I gave him one teaspoon Motilium suspension. What to do, I am worried.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern.

I would like to know more details, to know the cause of vomiting. Does he have outside food? It can be due to food indigestion. Does he have fever or throat pain? It can be a viral fever. Does he have tonsil problem? It can be due to tonsils. You can re-try the vomiting medicine of the same brand or other like Ondem or Emeset (Ondansetron) one teaspoon two times a day 30 minutes before meal. If no fever, do not worry, give vomiting medicine, maintain adequate hydration by giving liquids. I suggest giving him syrup Bandy plus one teaspoon (Albendazole and Ivermectin) tonight for worm infestation if no fever. Sometimes it can also cause vomiting. If vomiting is more than five times persistently, take him to his doctor right away as he may get dehydrated. All medicines to be taken on doctor's consent.

I hope I have answered your question.

Let me know if I can assist you further.
