    Though he's normally a good traveler, and we've been on the road for two weeks, my 3 year old has had stomach issues for three days now. He stopped throwing up on Tues, then he started the nasty diapers. Now he's back to throwing up and we are still two days from my parents' house. I decided to stop at an urgent care to get an idea of what I'm looking at and maybe a prescription for anti-nausea meds.

    Always a good idea to have him checked. Sometimes it's not the stomach that's the problem. If everything checks out ok, I like Emetrol and it's OTC. BRAT (Bananas, Rice, Applesauce and Toast) diet works well for nausea and diarrhea, but it's old school like me. Good luck with the rest of your trip.

    It was the stomach flu and they gave him zofran. I have it now and 7 hours to go. I can't take zofran, it makes it worse for me. What is emetrol?

    Keep him hydrated. That's a lot of fluid loss for a small body.

    I think he's nearly done. I'm planning on loading up with emetrol and Imodium for the drive.
