HI and thanks for posting.
Most of the time, pills are absorbed within 10-20 minutes of taking them-- that's to say that if you vomit after this period, there's little worry that you'll need to take the meds again (short of actually seeing the pills in your vomit).
Since you vomited an hour after taking your meds, I wouldn't recommend re-dosing.
Be well, BY
