  • 7 up, if you have the stomach flu water will come up every time you drink it.

  • small sips of pedialyte. not enough to quench your thirst.. just little sips.
    you might be able to keep it down better.

  • just had my little girl to the Dr for the stomach virus, he told us to get amodium and G2 gatorade, because it is sugar free or pedialyte
