vomiting diarrhea

Is there anything that I can do to help stop vomiting and diarrhea from food poisoning?
My husband is very sick from food poisoning and wants to know if there is anything he can do to stop vomiting or diarrhea, or at least lessen it somewhat. Also, what can he try to drink that won’t upset his stomach to help him with fluid loss? Also, is it possible to have food poisoning without a fever? Thanks!
One more question….how long does it last? We are hosting Thanksgiving here on Thursday. Thanks!

Answer by drdave1666
yes, to no fever…
drink clear liquids only….no milk or dairy. drink sips,like 1 oz every 30 minutes for a few hours then 2 oz every 30 minutes over a few hours….and so on…
clear liquids are gatorade(R), sweet tea, water, popsicles, jello, flat soda….if he continues to vomit and have diarrhea for longer than 24 hours, go to the ED.
onece the vomiting stops, so should the diarrhea. if the diarrhea should turn bloody, then go to the ED immediately.

The ER doc above has it down. You may also try some Emetrol, it’s an over the counter liquid for nausea. It may help settle his stomach. Hope he feels better soon.

Yes, you probably want it to run its course, that is I mean the diarrhea and vomiting are getting rid of the poisons. However dehydration is a concern. Probably something like Pedialyte to replace the fluids, but whatever fluids, it should be plenty. No food, it will only exacerbate the problem, maybe broth or jello,
gingerale.. If the situation has not greatly improved by about
48 hours then see the doctor, some food poisonings can be
very very dangerious, others just you just get over.

Answer by IAINTELLEN
Food poisoning caused by viruses often present without fever. The truth is, you really shouldn’t be trying to stop the nausea and vomiting. Your body is trying to rid itself of the toxins, and stopping it only makes the illness last longer. Of course, dehydration and electrolyte imbalance is always a danger when nausea and vomiting are present together. Ginger ale is often the best tolerated drink for people suffering stomach ailments. It also has some sugar in it to help give your system energy. Be watchful for the signs of dehydration, such as thirst, cracked lips, dry mouth, a smoothness to the tongue, or skin that stays tented after being pinched. If you notice any of these, get to your local emergency room. IV fluid will most likely be needed. There are medication that can stop the vomiting, if needed, such as Phenegran and Compazine.

Food poisoning is usually an infection and so he should get antibiotics and maybe even get tested for gastroenteritis. Plenty of fluids and take up to 8 Imodium tablets a day – that is 2mg capsules. A doctor could prescribe – something like Ciproxin for the infection, codeine phosphate and Imodium to get the diarrhea under control. Fluids and maybe re hydration salts. If he happens to be Russian and he has eaten in a Sushi restaurant in London recently – he should go to hospital.

I would try something like pepto bismol and flat ginger ale replaces eletralightd that you lose from vomitting.You might want to call a home doctor to make sure he is ok or hospital .I have had f poisoning n never had a fever.They also sell products it sounds gross but you stick it in your behind they use it for kids to and it will help stop the vomitting and diarhea.Call your pharmact and ask for the best product that would help n adult man who is vomitting n d and they will tell u the best product.

Answer by frenchy
Sports drinks are the best because they help to rehydrate. I would also suggest an over-the-counter medicine called “Emetrol.” I may have the spelling wrong. It comes in a white box with a rainbow on it. It is a liquid and works miracles for stopping the vommitting.

Answer by Lisa
Food poisoning can last anywhere from 12 hours to several days, depending on the type. He needs to stay away from any drug that will prevent diarrhea. The dairrhea is the body’s way of getting the toxins out of his GI tract. Watch for dehydration and take to hospital if he is lethargic, confused, or dehydrated. Lots of clear fluids to keep him hydrated. If he’s not recovering at all, IV fluids might be needed.

Answer by PIXXIE
paregoric (found at druge store) induces vomiting which you would want to get the poison out of system then have him sip lite broth eat small amounts of jello, small amounts of fluids till he is feeling better
knowing he does not want food when he is ready to eat bland food is best on stomach

Ya know calling poison control is really a good idea they know about these things

I have had food poison and i hope he feels better soon
