Management Of Vomiting After 1 Hour Of Drinking Folic Acid?
, Do I have to drink folic acid again when it’s taken but about 1 hour later it comes out because of vomiting?
Hello Saskia, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Vomiting after taking medication is a condition that is quite often experienced by patients. Vomiting can occur due to the disease process that is owned by the patient (or in pregnant women can also occur due to pregnancy in the first trimester), it can also occur due to side effects from drugs that cause nausea. Basically there are no clear limits on the need to take medicine again after vomiting, but you can use the following benchmarks:
If you vomit less than 30 minutes after taking the medicine or if you can see the drops of medicine coming out in the vomit, you can take the medicine again
If you vomit more than 90 minutes after taking the medicine, you do not need to take the medicine again because it is possible the drug has passed through the stomach
If you vomit between 30-90 minutes after taking the medicine, you should review the risks that can occur if you do not take the medicine again. For example if you are vomiting anti-seizure drugs, then it is better after vomiting the drug again minimized
In your case, because what you drink is folic acid (vitamins), you don't need to take folic acid anymore. You can continue taking the next hour of medication.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
