Oh boy, you just took your medication, you’re feeling ill (for whatever reason), and then…oh no…you vomit!
Now what do you do? Check out my video below to find out!
1. If you vomit within 15 minutes of taking your medication, take the medication again…no matter what!
2. If it has been 60 minutes or more since your dose, do not take another dose…it has probably gone past your stomach already.
3. If it has been between 15 to 60 minutes, this is where it gets a little tricky. Use your best judgement based on the medication you’re dealing with. If the risk of not taking your medication again outweighs the risk of having too much of it, then definitely go ahead and redose yourself.
In most cases (or with most drugs), you want to be conservative and not retake the “lost” tablet, capsule, etc. Take into consideration the toxicity of the drug, and watch my video again if need be!
Shoot me an e-mail if you have a specific medication in mind when it comes to whether or not you should redose yourself after vomiting. Cate@getpharmacyadvice.com is where you can find me!
