retake after vomiting?

Mar 19, 2009

Can I retake excedrin migraine after throwing up 15 minutes later? thank you

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for your post.

Usually, short of actually seeing the pill in the vomit, there's no need to retake the medication. This is because medications usually pass very quickly through the stomach and into the intestines (where they are less likely to come up with the vomit).


When should I start taking meds?
CD4 count fell
