  • I would just wait to give her next dose at the allotted time. Since you don't know how much stayed down, you could overdose her.

    You can also call the doctor that is on call.

  • You can always call your pediatrician office, most have on call doctors to answer questions. But I think that most likely you should just attempt to give her meds at the next dose and see what happens. Do they have to be taken with food or can you give them to her before she eats?

    the inhaler for sure was not effected by her getting sick, the other may have been.

  • Wait until the recommended time to give her, her next dose. That way if she didn't spit up all (or any) of her meds you're not overdosing her. For example, if it says give them every four hours, then wait the four hours before giving her a second dose. Even if she did throw up her body might have disgested the medication partially or even fully. You don't want to give her more then the recommended dose, so it's safe to wait the recommded time. Call the Pediatrician in the morning and see their thoughts on this if you have more concerns.

  • she is too young for an inhaler...they gave my son one at 3 and they don't get half the medicine. She needs breathing treatments.
