Abstract

Treating a vomiting child is a challenge, especially when the cause is unknown. Not only is the child suffering, but the parents are afraid that their child is seriously ill. Oral rehydration is the mainstay of treatment to avoid dehydration, but is it ever appropriate to consider antiemetic medications?
