Can vomiting attacks be prevented?

It may be possible to prevent or lessen vomiting attacks by:

  • avoiding known triggers such as certain foods
  • getting enough sleep
  • treating any sinus problems or allergies
  • tackling any stress or anxiety
  • eating small, carbohydrate-containing snacks between meals, before exercise and at bedtime (this can help prevent future attacks for some people)

Some medicines used to prevent migraines may also help.
