Other Treatment Suggestions

Besides making sure that you are adequately hydrated, other treatment suggestions that may help relieve symptoms include the following:
 
  • Allow your gastrointestinal tract to settle by not eating for a few hours
  • Sip small amounts of clear liquids, or suck on ice chips if vomiting is still a problem
  • Gradually reintroduce food, starting with bland, easy-to-digest food, like toast, broth, apples, bananas, and rice
  • Avoid dairy products, caffeine, and alcohol until recovery is complete
  • Get plenty of rest.
